Viajo Porque Preciso, Vuelvo Porque Te Amo (2009) Dir. Marcelo Gomes & Karim Aïnouz
Today was the first day of CERO LATITUD film festival here in Quito, Ecuador. The first film I saw was VIAJO PORQUE PRECISO, VUELVO PORQUE TE AMO (2009), an experimental docufiction road movie from Brazil directed and written by Marcelo Gomes and Karim Aïnouz. Beautifully structured by a first-person narration by José Renato, a young geologist traveling alone, the film takes the viewer on a poetic journey across Brazil.
