Bravado Magenta is a deep journey into body politics and colonized manhood. It offers a fundamental discussion in times where various forms of patriarchal violence reach the level of social epidemic around the world. A documentary like Bravado Magenta has the potential to trespass beyond the borders of academia and art house cinemas, making its value accessible within communities often invisibilized by hegemonic cultural industries.
