The streets of Sao Paulo and a portable green screen are used to great effect in creating this expansive piece of experimental art. Filmed during a period of political unrest in Brazil, a film already about layers, takes on an extra one. Douwe Dijkstra is a filmmaker from the Netherlands and “Green Screen Gringo” is a brilliant piece of video art, playful and inquisitive and finding great joy in the mixing of visual landscapes. A surfer and a lifeguard are transported into an art gallery. A dancing couple on the street transported into the bedroom of a teenage DJ. A man on a treadmill runs across the beach. Full of stimulating juxtapositions, it’s constantly building and shifting, and the pleasure is in trying to piece it all together, the real from the surreal. But for all its visual trickery, it wouldn’t register near as deeply if the raw characters and settings weren’t so accurately captured in their home setting. (16 minutes). Directed by Douwe Dijkstra.
