Sorria (Smile)

The film is an observation about the safety devices that permeate the Brazilian urban environment. Walls, fences, grid and cameras expose the segregating architecture in which we live. A sense of security permeated by a nervous smile.

Filmed in the city of Goiânia, Goiás, Brazil, these images represent a sample of the landscape of the middle and upper class districts of the great Brazilian cities.
