Brazil, France | 2023 | 105' | Portuguese

In an indigenous territory stands the Guarulhos International Airport. Hundreds of thousands of passengers cross it daily and 35.000 workers support its operation. “The Intrusion” retains its gaze not upon those passing through, but on what remains there, following characters whose lives connect on everyday life working on this ground. Alê, a runway worker whose family history was overlapped by the construction of the airport, conducts us in encounters through times. She and her friends’ memories and future are permeated by a common matter: traces of a past in a territory in constant transformation.
