Future Making Projects

Listen - [Pensamentos Recorrentes, Recurring Thoughts] / Narrative Podcast
Combining interviews with psychologists and fictional episodes, this award-winning podcast portrays the dramas of depression and suicidal thoughts.
From Brazil, the most depressed and anxious country in Latin America, we hear from the sensitive Júlia how it feels to be alive and young in '19: no prospect of the future, but socially obliged to live it.

Read - [Avisos de um Futuro Qualquer, Luiz and The Machine: pilot] / Series
A series that interweaves episodes of fiction with documentary.
First, with dystopian narratives, we get to know the fears that await us in the future and, in the sequence, experts debate the scenario, how much we should fear it and the likely ways to change it. Selected for
pre-production by Na Laje Filmes and TeleImage. No greenlight beyond this point.
