Short-film work by Joaquim Barreto

Title: Empire of Modern Passivity


Duration: 8:00


Year: 2007


Role: Producer/Director




Synopsis: The film’s visual and audio nature has been envisaged as one that will describe a conflict-taking place. The conflict results from the interaction of two fundamentalists, who are the primary characters of the film. The landscape was chosen so as to lend a surrealistic overtone, and one where iconographical readings can be made and one where a sense of mythic or epic narrative is alluded to.
