// ..* \  CREATION  / *.. \\

UNSPEAKABLE is a short film about the intricate messages that never make it into social conversation. Bianca is a portrait rabbit who confuses the description of facts with the obtuse memories of a divided Brazil.

*..Between fiction and reality, the rabbit's point of view materializes through her own vision of the facts, demonstrating her detective rhetoric in the darkness of her living room, illuminated only by the web that reveals itself under the black light, which stain your drawings on the wall. The accomplice, the short film will explore the aesthetics of a chiaroscuro baroque, the harsh light and shadow of the city's dirty poles and the stylized camera angle to create an atmosphere of reference to the classic film noir of the 40s and 50s.
