Elvis and Madona is a romantic comedy that deals with an unusual subject in a delicate and realistic way: a love story between young lesbian Elvis and a transvestite Madona.

The screenplay comprehends a full array of human types and, by following the journey of both protagonists, illustrates the conflicts generated by the evolution of behavior and custom. It is a modern and agile picture, and its soundtrack will follow the latest musical trends. Nevertheless, it is essentially a love story, proving that love can exist in any situation.

Após um período de crescimento relativamente robusto, que permitiu que dezenas de milhões de famílias mais pobres se juntassem à classe média global, o crescimento da América Latina diminuiu recentemente, em parte como resultado de fatores externos. Para diminuir as grandes lacunas de padrões de vida em relação às economias avançadas, a região precisa aumentar significativamente o crescimento da produtividade, garantindo que os benefícios advindos alcancem a todos. Isso exigirá reformas estruturais abrangentes, apoiadas por um arcabouço de políticas públicas voltado à produtividade, que incorpore, desde o início, considerações sobre a inclusão social.
