Muito Romântico will be screened in the International Panorama Section of the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF).
At both screenings, on August 2nd and 7th, Muito Romântico is accompanied by the short film There is Land! by Ana Vaz.


"In this charming experimental feature, the life of young Brazilian couple new to Berlin takes on a strange dimension when a cosmic portal opens up in their apartment.

Drawing upon John Cassavetes' maxim that "love is a stream", film artists Gustavo Jahn and Melissa Dullius (aka Distruktur) mix autobiography and fantasy in this whimsical new non-narrative feature, assembled over a decade and shot on gorgeous 16mm to form a colourful tapestry of past, present and future.

Inspired to find a new space to make art and films, a young Brazilian couple board a red cargo ship and journey across the Atlantic, bound for the creative allure of Berlin. Their new apartment becomes the centre of an ever-changing creative universe, a kind of cinema of their own experience where friends and lovers play roles and reality and fiction blur. When an interdimensional portal opens up in their home, memories and dreams collide, challenging the film's own fabric of time and space."
