Short Film: SAUDADE, 8min., Switzerland, Documentary

This Short experimental Documentary will guide us along the feeling of “Saudade”, the Portuguese word that defines the longing for someone or something, in a profound state of melancholia.
Through the testimony of Elias, a Syrian refugee in Berlin, we slowly touch the ropes of the feeling and are gently invited to float along the steps of two actesses, in a sequence of images that in an abstract interpretation of the Director, paths the journey of this feeling.
A dance around Saudade that composes a frame for the feeling through a composition of frames that humanize each character and connects to the spectator himself.
How closely can one relate to a stranger pain through emotions or memories that are not shared in time but reflect a similar and emotional skin?
