Caru Alves de Souza, Josefina Trotta


In the midst of a serious economic crisis, Julieta tries to keep her decadent porn movie theater in downtown São Paulo. Devouring books and obsessed with happy endings, Julieta helps everyone who crosses her path, but is unable to help herself. Pressed by a property developer to sell her cinema, she tries to resist in every way and preserve her fertile imagination with the help of her friends.

Visual concept: 

I want to follow some strategies that I used in my last movie, My Name is Baghdad, such as not working with electrical and grip departments. The camera will inevitably be either operated in hand (with some type of stabiliser or not) or on a tripod, generating a more naturalistic aesthetic. This should be contrasted with the inclusion of non-naturalist elements in the musical scenes and soundtrack. I also want to work with a cast composed of professional and non-professional actors.
