Amos Lassen wrote “I am not even going to pretend to understand this science-fiction stunner directed by Eder Santos. To understand it might take away from sitting back, relaxing and just watching the beauty on the screen. The movie has a lot in common with the surrealism of Salvador Dalí complete with surrealism’s often existentialist preoccupations.”

A Modernist Brazilian sci-fi film offering a dreamy take on new age spirituality and the physical realm.

In an age devoid of memory and truth, a man, guided by intuitions and dreams, goes off in search of the meaning of life and existence. Revelations and symbols arise on his path, through which he comes to encounter his soulmate in the BLUE DESERT.

With plot points based on Yoko Ono’s first art book, this modernist Brazilian science-fiction film features Odilon Esteves (The Time and Turn of Augusto Matraga), Ângelo Antônio (Two Sons of Francisco), Chico Díaz (Tropical Paradise), Maria Luísa Mendonça (Invisible Woman), and Michelle Castro.

“It’s not quite a futuristic tale, but more of a lesson in how the human experience will change as the world grows rapidly around us. It’s a film governed by aesthetic and how the senses process change.” – Anderson Vision
