SynopsisA European artist writes about his experience in portraying life in Brazil during the colonial period. A doorman watches the images of the security cameras in a residential building, while reflecting on his profession and the relationship with his employers. Everything seems to be in its place. Until the images portrayed by the European artist emerge, and with them all the nightmares of a country's past. Is it just a nightmare, or is it a call?
"A film that is at the same time deeply unsettling and wonderfully playful. Using various sources of image and text material and performative moments, it is both visually spectacular and urgent in its politics by linking Brazil’s colonial past to the country’s contemporary two-class society. It makes full advantage of cinema’s capacity to stun and stir, to contemplate and engage, to charge and not simply judge." (Jury Statement - Best Documentary Award 2022 IndieLisboa)
