O QUE NÃO SE VÊ / WHAT IS NOT SEEN
Documentary constructed from a scouting trip around the Azores islands of Pico and Faial, between 2015 and 2017. Years later, while revisiting the captured material, the director found a new film. A hidden film, where the power of nature and chance reveal a narrative about friendship, cinema and the influence of the unforeseen in artistic creation.
