Neverquiet (Film of Wonders)

Neverquiet (Film of Wonders)

Collectieve film, gecoördineerd door Felipe Bragança en Marina Meliande (zie ook The Joy). Zij stuurden een brief van 'onbehagen' aan filmmakers, waarin ze vroegen naar liefde, utopie en explosies... Het veelvormige, poëtische resultaat is een lust voor het oog en balsem voor de ziel.
