Cao Guimarães, 2007, 80 min

Between the cities of Montes Claros and Pedra Azul, three lonely drifters follow different paths, each establishing intimate relationships in a transitory world. This second installment in Cao Guimarães’s trilogy about solitude continues his daring visual exploration of existential themes. The film captures the relationship between thought and movement, geography and introspection, through breathtaking shots of human forms against the surrounding landscape.
