While We Are Here (Enquanto estamos aqui)

Directed by Luiz Pretti, Clarissa Campolina

  • Brazil 2019; 77 min
  • Original version: Portuguese, Arabic, French, English


Lamis and Wilson are migrants in New York. She's a Lebanese that just arrived, and he's a Brazilian that has lived there illegally, for 10 years. An hybrid narrative constructed with a poetic approach; a travel diary that becomes a chronic and takes us into the essence of human micro-politics in times of globalization: an uncertain kingdom of desire, hope and fears.
