O Bosque dos Sonâmbulos
“Garden of the Sleepwalkers”
Brazil | 2017 | 21 Minutes | Director: Matheus Marchetti
The sexually repressed guests at an old mountainside hotel fall under a spell after dark. In the dead of night, voices lure them into the woods, to a ball of shadows where they can live out their innermost secret desires.
Matheus Marchetti, the director and scriptwriter; Vitor Mascarenhas, musical director and composer; Beatriz Politi, assistant director; Daniela Alcântara and Giuliana Gasparini, co-art directors; Camila Alves and Isabella Melo, co-producers; João Paulo Belentani, sound director; Daniela Piepszyk, automaker; and Daniel Melchert, director of photography. The landscapes of Campos do Jordão by itself will give the work a striking aesthetic, which will be accentuated by the elaborate costumes of Ana Tex (who has already produced costumes for artists such as Johnny Hooker).
