In an arid place with scarce resources, Larissa and Saulo live their routine and intimacy until one day Saulo jumps in the lake of a high rock and does not come back to the surface. At that moment, time falls apart and we dive into Larissa's anguish of losing her mate, combined to their moments together and moments when she lives alone. We are not sure if the moments when she is with him are new experiences in the future or memories and not even if the moments alone are the imagination of pain it would be to live without it or a real future.
About the director
My career started as a documental photographer, working with blackand white negative film and natural light only. I have a book publishedabout a fisherman community in the south of Brazil. Then While living inMilan as an assistant and there met fashion and beauty. As a photographer, my work has been featured in publications like Vogue, Nowness and Elle Brasil.From this universe, I went to music video and then advertising and narrative films. My work today carries my background, capturing moments of real people and hunting light situations; creating aesthetically strong narratives capable of creating interest and emotion.
