Carmo, after losing his sister, lets himself be infected by a group of 3 women in order to satisfy his distressing need for belonging.
HOW FAR ARE WE WILLING TO GO TO SATISFY OUR NEED FOR INTEGRATION AND BELONGING?
Religion, culture and morality are myths that inhabit the collective imagination of a population so that groups cooperate effectively. The human being needs to feel that he belongs, even if he does not fully understand what he belongs to or because he feels he needs to belong. This need is not rational or conscious, it results from the contagion to which we have been exposed since we were born. We are not born to share the imaginary of those around us, it is transmitted to us and we are infected.
It is this sense of collective and belonging that we want to portray in this short film.
"Deus há-de nos perdoar."
“Quatro Terços” will tell this story divided into 3 short chapters that address the 3 phases of contagion. The phase of transmission, progression and acceptance of contagion.
The brotherhood, irreverence and freedom of a group of 3 women who deviate from the conventional, will chain a young woman looking for something that integrates and guides her.
"Tudo aqui de uma forma ou de outra é pecado."
While this character represents the ingenuity of the intrinsic desire to belong and the brutality of the contagion to which she is willing to expose herself, to satisfy the need for integration.
The group is a generic representation of the motivating power of culture, the dark side that we deny and the contradictory beliefs that we ignore and that are present in the cultures in which we believe to be inserted.
This one will brutally expose our character who cannot acquire half beliefs and that in order to belong to him, he will have to fully practice the way of life he proposed.
“Quatro Terços”, is a short film that will live from the expression of feeling by the actors, from the sound and choreographic power, from slow events and from the scenic aesthetics created by the religious décors and the costumes that elevated these women.
The “Four Thirds” spaces will live on Catholicism contrasting with the sin and impurity that the group associates with, creating a contradiction between the beliefs and the acts practiced.
Given the country's circumstances, the pre-production phase is being done at a distance, and we have been trying hard to make it a reality with our own means, but even with our best efforts we have reached a point where it is impossible to complete this project without the help of more people.
With this we use this means to get help in financing this project, which may also be yours.
So join us!
