Indianara Siqueira is an unapologetic transgender whore (self-proclaimed), a farleft activist, a housemother to dozens of trans sex workers at the NEM (“neither/ nor”) homeless shelter, and a motivational example of thousands of occupied squats in Rio de Janeiro. Your Mother’s Comfort follows as Indianara runs for city council in 2016 (losing by 300 votes), leads in the occupation of a building to provide housing and a safe place for disadvantaged neighbours, and anxiously watches along with her fellow NEMers as the hateful Jair Bolsonaro ascends to the top of the Brazilian political scene in 2018.


She may seem a force of nature, but Indianara is also human, and Golub’s film explores his subject as she drinks, reflects on past sexual encounters, and succumbs to exhaustion as the new president is sworn in. Politically defeated but alive to fight another day, her’s is a spark that could once again become a flame. What a woman! -KE
