drowned paradise



Tides of words and rubbish bring memories and waste left by a civilization that has long inhabited and decimated the Earth. A family from the 1990s in Europe (or was it from Porto Alegre?) produces its future with its father's dream of being a liberal professional and the maturing of his daughter, the young dancer. One hundred years earlier, in the Manaus of the rubber boom, the Barons ordered the construction of the Teatro Amazonas to an idealist German architect, who arrived not only to build a theater, but to teach the natives about revolution: new times for new men. This apocalyptic journey is now just an abandoned HARD_DISK in space. Edited fragments and corrupt files. Kino-theatre, the stage became a canvas.
