Synopsis: “They met in the summer rain. A carnival and silent film. “
The name of Him (the Clovis) is a surface film – based on news reports and daily life of large Brazilian cities, but no direct link with any real event. Violence, joy and silence are worked in the film in order to build a space where characters are so real and intangible – a narrative of small sequences marked in a whirlwind of events that are a mixture of fragments and gaps sew: He is a quiet man and divides his time between his work in the violent center of Rio de Janeiro and its fourth in pension Catumbi. She is the girl who appears in your life, on a rainy afternoon – and then things start to go very quickly.
A film carnival and silence, love and anger – apathy and desire.
A chronicle of the conflicts and celebrations of a city sewn between hills, forests and cement. A tribute to Rio, maybe?
Silent film sound.
