Neverquiet (Film of Wonders)

Neverquiet (Film of Wonders)

A collective film, coordinated by Felipe Bragança and Marina Meliande (see also The Joy). They sent a letter of ‘unease’ to filmmakers in which they asked for love, utopia and explosions... The many-faceted and poetic result is wonderful to watch and balm to the soul.
