Half Man, Half Ghost (Metade Homem, Metade Fantasma)

Directed by Davi Pretto

  • Brazil 2017; 30 min
  • Original version: Portuguese
  • Genre: Documentary


The whole life of man is but a point in time. HALF MAN, HALF GHOST is the latest exploration by Davi Pretto after his first feature-film CASTANHA. Pretto shows us an old man’s slow disappearing process, in a far and remote area in the south of Brazil. A man that represents an old style of men that inhabited this region, but no longer exists. Somewhere between an ethnographic documentary and a fantasy, a journey into darkness and oblivion.
