Hulene B is the district built around the Lixeira, the large waste dump in Maputo, Mozambique. A metaphysical scenario, translated image of our aseptically modern world, inverted utopia of our destiny. Made by four short movies between comedy and drama. Four real stories to tell a microcosm suspended between pre-historicism and postmodernism, between fatalism and desire for redemption. The social and power dynamics, aspirations, desires and dreams of the people of Lixeira. Paradigm of a forgotten and rarely told humanity. The invisibles.
Roberto Galante was an Italian director and screenwriter, (Solinas prize in 2016 with GLUCK IST NICHT CHIO CHIPS ODER ZAHNPASTA). He dedicated his life helping populations in difficulty, promoting several humanitarian missions in Mozambique.
