7' . super-8 . 2015 . Rio de Janeiro


Raimunda was a great storyteller who became herself a parable. At CanoaQuebrada (CE), Raimunda’s first house had been eaten by a dune. Between 1977 and 1979, I had the chance to document the battle waged by her against the dune, which advancedover her new home. And she was making legend: “if the world ends, there comes another world,” she used to say.
