It's really hard to define what we are: we are NOT a production company, we are NOT a collective, we are NOT a design studio, we are NOT an agency. We are a group of people that bonded in search for magnificence, to experience as much as we could and to be as near as possible to the multifariousness of the human experience. To understand the madness we were born in and try to give something back to the cosmos.

WE ARE BANZAISTUDIO! Thales Banzai + Fernando Nogari + Luan Banzai + Rimon Guimarães

Hard Asses Don't Twerk: Because Being a Woman is Nasty

Doc, 30', Brasil

The documentary “Hard Asses Don’t Twerk”, from Thales Banzai and Camila Cornelsen (2017), portraits the reality of the Psychology & Dance group, BDNT, created in South Brazil by the student Jade Quoi. Through intimate conversations with Jade and the class members - some of them that took part of group since its formation and others that just got there - their transformation process and search for acceptance is exposed, showing how these girls stopped being victims of a predominantly sexist society and started to act in a more independent and satisfactory way.
