Joana pimenta
Um campo de aviação
Video | hdv | color | 14'0'' | Portugal | 2016
An aviation field in an unknown suburb. The lake underneath the city burns the streets. The mountains throw rock into the gardens. In the crater of a volcano in Fogo, a model Brazilian city is lifted and dissolves. Two people find each other in this landscape, 50 years apart.
