A Morte Diária (2015)
1h 18min · Documentary · 13 April 2015
"The Daily Death" is a study of the region from where I was born. Whenever I go back there I notice the changes of the city. It's transforming into something I don't recognize anymore. This is why I decided to make a film about a region in extinction. It's an "Apocalyptic Encyclopedia" of the landscape and the humans that dwell there, becoming forgotten as time goes by. Despite being a film about a specific area, it still communicates to any given city when it shows the "little deaths" we all confront on a daily basis: the memories that will soon be lost, ideals that become impossible to achieve, animals that die or become mutilated, landscapes and homes that transform by that ever attacking thing called progress. The film is subdivided in days and through each story or situation it moves geographically untill it arrives in the city. Once there, it becomes clear that the idea of progress didn't work: we find ourselves on the edge of the end of that land.
