vengeful

The film was shot at Rio de Janeiro, on the historical district of Santa Teresa, where many old beetles (named fuscas in Brazil) still run the streets, giving a nostalgic look to the neighborhood. It tells, in an adventurous tone, the vengeance of an old fusca after being despised by a modern vehicle. In the coexistence between the old and the new, the fight is, sometimes, unavoidable.

Director Biography - Claudia Dantas

I am a Brazilian photojournalist who worked for several magazines and diaries, in Brazil and abroad. I’m fascinated by the histories behind the camera. The moving pictures are my true passion both in fiction movies as much as in documentaries and testimonials.

It was wonderful to record in Santa Teresa where the fuscas are still common due to their strength and bravery.
