Experiencing Interruptions?

Continuous Sunset Rhapsody

A brief sunset in the forest shot in continuous plane, remixed. A metaphor for the burnings caused by the continuous Amazon deforestation, the largest tropical jungle of the world. The original ambient sound is urban, captured with the camera during filming on the streets. His speed was changed, and the sound of passing cars and buses gave rise to another sound landscape, referring to the sounds of the forest, and to his protective spirits, like Matinta, whose high-pitched whistle announces his presence. The continuous video plane accelerates, decreases, and repeats this cycle in changes almost imperceptible to the eye. Sounds of pious birds, tractors, chainsaws and the crackling of flames are interwoven into a final melancholy narrative in his faithful portrait.

Director Statement

Our filmic look is about people and events of our time, we try to make films that can multiply or look at the world, sometimes in a poetic way, other times in a raw way. In our view, each film has a good gestation time until it is ready, then, after we mature, we can share our fruits with people and let them go their way in the world.
