Experiencing Interruptions?


In 2012, Benzin Crew, located in São Paulo – started production of feature SOROCHE. The group had been working with vídeo clips production in Brazil using basically Canon DLSR câmeras, like 7D and 5D. By that time, some Holywood productions were already using these cameras.
“If even american industry is using such cameras how come we don’t use them as well”
Starting from this point that producers started the project of doing a feature film with own resources. And after one month after the feature idealization the group went to Bolivia and Chile where for 15 days 10 hours were shot in locations like the Salar de Uyuni, Atacama desert and La Paz.
The quality of the material shot in Bolivia overcame the expectations. After going back to Brazil the group went after parterships to conclude the movie.
The movie counts as well with a Strong cast, made by famous and prestigious actors in Brazil like Thaide (2 Coelhos), Roberto Marchese (2 Coelhos), Serginho Hondjako (Malhação - Rede Globo), Emerson Groti (Cinderela), Yudi Tamashiro (SBT) and young talents like Ton Padro (Não sou Bistrô), Marcos Ferrian (Rebeldes), Carol Macedo (Fina Estampa - Rede Globo) and newcomers Diogo Jordão and Ferdi Gi.
It was 2 years of post production and movie was finally concluded in 2016.

Director Statement

I´ve noticed that some of the best film prodctions in the world were using the DLSR, that's when I realized I had all the necessary stuff to shoot a movie. I invited some professionals who used to work with me shooting video clips in Brazil and we traveled to Bolivia to shoot Soroche at the Salar de Uyuni, in my opinion the most beautiful place on earth.

The script was written according to the funds we raised and the partnerships we made until the editing of the movie, and honestly, I didn't know what was about to come. Today I am very proud to have finished the film.

Indeed it's not perfect, but I feel like there is a soul in it, it's like the movie is alive.
