Muito Romântico

Melissa and Gustavo cross the Atlantic to start a new life. They set sail on making films, friends and music, but fear awakens when a secret emerges. A cosmic portal opens up inviting them to expand their journey beyond time and space. Muito Romântico is a stream that carries along hearts and minds. A playful rearrangement of experiences, memories and fantasies into a journey transcending space and time.

Bio/Filmo Melissa Dullius & Gustavo Jahn

Melissa Dullius (born in Porto Alegre, 1981) and Gustavo Jahn (born in Florianópolis, 1980) form the artist duo Distruktur since 2006, when they moved together from South Brazil to Berlin. Distruktur's body of work takes form as films, photographs, film performances, music, text and graphic. It crosses the borders between art and film, experimental and narrative, photography and moving image. Characteristic of their work is the use of 16mm film, mostly processed through handmade techniques. They are founding members of the analog film association LaborBerlin e.V.
