An intergenerational tale exploring themes of race, colonisation and national identity, A Yellow Animal is a gobsmacking adventure of gold prospectors, gem smugglers and a filmmaker, whose spirit guide may — or may not — be maliciously following him.

While trying to make a film, Fernando (Higor Campagnaro) must trace his history back to his grandfather in order to understand his present. His reckoning with the past takes him from urban Brazil into the muddy goldfields of Mozambique. Writer and director Felipe Bragança harmonises multiple story threads into a provocative and profound film that boasts bold visuals and brims with complex ideas.
