Swinguerra is a film directed by Barbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca for the Brazil Pavilion at the 2019 Venice Art Biennale.

The name Swinguerra comes from Swingueira, a type of dance popular in northeastern Brazil, where the words Swing and Guerra, dance and war merge.

The film was made in collaboration with the performers to show the impact of the dance discipline on communities that are often considered marginal.

As a result, Swinguerra is also a representation of contemporary Brazilian culture in current political and social tension.
