Viajo porque preciso, volto porque te amo

by Karim AÏNOUZ & Marcelo GOMES

Film Title: Viajo porque preciso,volto porque te amo

Driving into the sertão (backlands) of Brazil’s Nordeste, a geologist recounts his work and a love story. With his digital and Super 8 cameras, he crosses the territory and meets those who live there. In this true-false documentary, which invents a single alter ego, “José Renato”, Marcelo Gomes and Karim Aïnouz propose an anthropological glimpse of Brazil. The travelogue is inseparable from the diary, the road movie from the essay (sometimes reminiscent of Chris Marker’s Sunless), in a melancholy and hypnotic progression.
