La isla not bonita

Another rare footage that the internet made not so rare : Isle of flowers, an essay-documentary that will make the viewer alternatively amused and uncomfortable, and then uncorfomagle.

Another rare footage that the internet made not so rare anymore : Isle of flowers.

An essay-documentary that will make any viewer alternatively amused, then uncomfortable. And then uncomfortable. Never knowing whenever he is watching a fiction or a documentary, the viewer follows the path of a tomato or the creation of perfume, from the field to the consumer to the dump, and what it implies to produce and consume such products. How much it costs in human terms. Ihla das Flores is a real rare piece that non only cinema bookworms must have seen. The average audience is highly avdised to pass this test told by a forever haunting voice.

Isle Of Flowers – a short story by Jorge Furtado, Brazil – 1989.
