Synopsis

Research, animation and collage magically and ritually bring into the present a colonial archive stuffed with catalogs, display cases and photos. By activating the forces of the phantasmagoric, the collection from the José de Guimarães International Art Centre is brought to life in an interesting process of film alchemy. (RS)
