Praia do futuro (Futuro Beach)

Feature Film Brazil Germany 2014

Donato works as a life guard at Praia do Futuro, a beach in Fortaleza. His life suddenly changes when he fails to save a German tourist, who is swallowed up by the ocean waves. Feeling guilty, he falls madly in love with Konrad, a biker, a friend of the drowned German, who takes Donato with him to Berlin: a new beginning. Eight years later, Ayrton, Donato's younger brother, travels to Berlin to find out what drove him to move to Germany, running away and leaving everything behind, something Ayrton cannot forgive his brother for. The person he finds before him is "a German speaking ghost". Elegant from an aesthetic point of view and rich in references to Michelangelo Antonioni and to Scorpio Rising by Kenneth Anger, this movie also appeals because of the brilliant use of the locations: the golden beaches of Fortaleza and an unusual and alluring Berlin. The soundtrack is incredible. Karim Aïnouz, the director, is Brazilian but lives in Berlin. The movie premiered at the 64th Berlin Film Festival in 2014.
