A Revry Original Series: Premieres Brazilian LGBTQ
Multi-Award Winning SEPTO
On December 7th, the Brazilian Multi-Award winning LGBTQ series
SEPTO premieres as a Revry Original Series on the first LGBTQ streaming
network. SEPTO dives deep in this dreamy Brazilian coastal drama where a
young promising Olympian finds herself, independence and love.
Coming from the most discriminated area in the northeast ofBrazil, Creator / Star, Alice Carvalho was honored to represent hercommunity by winning multiple festivals in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiroand the Trofeu Cultura RN. SEPTO then went on to represent Brazil infestivals internationally including Asia, Germany and the United States. It became the first audiovisual production from the northeast of Brazilto receive prominence in Hollywood by receiving an award at theinternational Out Web Fest in Hollywood.
“Hollywood is the center of the audiovisual industry it is where
any creator dreams to be. The name itself, “Hollywood”, attributes to
any work a kind of title without price, almost like a stamp of quality.
“From the region we came from, it is not common to dream so
high,” says Carvalho. “In addition to the discrimination of race,
gender and sexual orientation, we also face daily a kind of xenophobia against
the culture produced in the northeast of the country. How to dream so high
living so far in a country so full of discrimination and having only two reais
in the pocket? This release of SEPTO on Revry is the reflection of
approval in a global seal. As a whole, it legitimizes and boosts Brazil’s
anti-homophobia speech as well as reaffirms the importance and quality of Latin
American shows such as ours.”
Revry’s CEO, Damian Pelliccione shares “We were so thrilled to
champion Alice’s wonderful series and bring a global spotlight to her creative
voice. She is innovative and daring, not only in her work, but in her
life – she is a great success story and deserves to be known and tell the
stories that so many can relate to, but are rarely seen – especially from where
she comes from.”
SEPTO is available only on Revry.tv.
