About this film

Synopsis

Experimental, short and hypnotic, the work, which takes place in the suburbs of Copacabana, takes the form of a collage of current images and archives in Super 8. Narrated by poet Fausto Fawcett and sound editing by musician Arnaldo Brandão.

FIFEQ-MTL'S OPINION

An inebriating audio-visual fresco embracing the multiple facets of a town depicted as plural and as a place of all ever-imagined fantasies.
