Director Statement

Lost Records is what some may call an arthouse film. For us it's a cool loving piece of hybrid film that mixes reality with fiction. A path built along the adventures we came across with, while shooting this quest in the exotic island of São Miguel, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Wether during the moments of the purest truth, or of creative bursts, and even musical experiments, we behind the cameras, also went on the search of our own lost records.
