This short film, which is not in competition, will precede the film Pyrale (Moth)

Between a house in the Atlantic forest and a genetically-modified mosquito factory near São Paulo, a polyamorous, non-binary relationship struggles to survive an epidemic spreading across Brazil. While in the factory millions of mosquitos are born daily inside test tubes, the power dynamics between Helmut, Calixto, and Tao only intensifies. A mordida (The Bite) is a film found somewhere between horror, science fiction and a queer drama.
