Press Quotes

Furtado films the actors in close-ups, capturing a feeling of disorientation as viewers experience events alongside Silvia.

Jennifer Green, The Hollywood Reporter

Furtado has a talent for arresting visuals.

Fionnuala Halligan, Screendaily

An electro-tinted soundtrack and neon-lit nightmares meld beautifully with Furtado’s lush juxtapositions of the menacing heart of darkness beating deep in the primeval thick of the jungle.

Nicholas Bell, Ioncinema

There are shades of Claire Denis’ charged eroticism in this Brazilian zombie film.

Katherine McLaughlin, SciFi Now

A distraught teen love story.

Léo Soesanto, Grazzia
