Sandro (Leandro Faria Lelo)—distracted by sexual jealousy to the point of transfixion—lives in a rural Brazilian factory town where the same cast of characters circle one another at work, in the market, by the company pool, and out in the forests, where male blue-collar laborers meet for sex, real and imagined.
In Daniel Nolasco’s DRY WIND / VENTO SECO—an unrestrained erotic thriller of the school of João Pedro Rodrigues, Julián Hernández, Yann Gonzalez, and Nicolas Winding Refn—the viewer is swept into Sandro’s neon-lit fantasies and dreams as he attempts to supplant a growing sense of alienation and nihilism with the corporeal form of co-worker Maicon (Rafael Theophilo).
