Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
Do not forget the old tradition of tales and narratives, with the spectator’s challenge to learn a moral conclusion. The starting point is a child’s abandonment. It is unusual, almost absurd, but because it happens, it accentuates what will be the narrative of the film, a practically delirious sequence with the paradoxical nexus of the absurd and unpredictable. Powerful metaphors follow from the current society, exemplified by impatient drivers’ insensitivity, by the opportunism and media of politicians; for the uncultured superficiality of some media; for the pretentious ridicule of some fast-culture creators, for the empty television debate; etc. The graphics go hand in hand with the style and nature of the argument: the visual chaos accentuates the intention where the limits of the elements are not well assumed, representing this uncontrolled connection of realities. The vivid colours refer to the joy of building and the euphoria of a collective in unison. In contrast, the characters’ design refers to a pseudo-ingenuity that punctuates the film’s entire story. The notions that society does not always follow a norm or logic, that we advance more out of curiosity and desire to build new realities than in the image of the old tradition of good stories where everything can end well and that, even in almost circumstances absurd “whatever works”, leads us to explore once again the director’s usual message: “we don’t fucking control anything on this planet”.
