A VIA LÁCTEA / THE MILKY WAY


Dir. Lina Chamie

Prod. Girafa Filmes

fiction, 35mm, color, 88 min


SYNOPSIS


Heitor and Júlia love one another. After a violent quarrel over the phone, he decides to go after her. Anguished, he drives his car through the busy streets of São Paulo, in the rush hour. The transit, the traffic jams, the pedestrians, the homeless, the bars and the cityscape, all interacts with Heitor and his love digressions.
The limits between life and death, time and space are aligned with the stars and suns: they explode light years away to shine one night over São Paulo and to inspire a tender kiss of love. Or of death.

SYNOPSIS (short)

Heitor and Júlia have been dating for a long time. Dusk is falling in the city of São Paulo and the couple is having a violent quarrel over the phone. Anguished, Heitor enters his car and goes off in the direction of Julia’s house to resolve things face to face.

Through his journey into the jammed city we see the possibilities of love, loss and death in the urban situation and its social context.

DIRECTOR’S COMMENTS

A couple in love, played by Marco Ricca and Alice Braga, have a violent phone conversation. They have to talk face to face, but between them lies the city of Sao Paulo.
“The Milky Way” is a vertiginous love story set in the social and urban context of a large metropolis. Heitor, the protagonist, takes us on a trip through the traffic-jammed streets of São Paulo, leading the way for a hands-on contention with the city where urban spaces are explored in a semi-documental manner mixed with fiction. It is in this anguished and magical trajectory filled with desire through which we enter the undefined inner recedes of our character and accompany him on his amorous odyssey.

“To shoot ‘The Milky Way’ I counted on the digital support of a small camera with the necessary agility to shoot the streets of São Paulo almost continuously, ‘robbing’ scenes of the city. 80% percent of ‘The Milky Way’ was shot with a Digital MiniDV and 20% in Super 16 mm and 35 mm. It is a film about love and desire, affection and farewell, in the midst of the urban chaos and its social and human context”.

The screenplay for “The Milky Way” participated in the “1st Taller de Desarrollo de Proyectos Cinematográficos Iberoamericanos” sponsored by the Fundación Carolina and Casa de América in Madrid/Spain 2003. “The Milky Way” was awarded the Casa de America Award at the “Cine en Construcción” – San Sebastian/Spain 2006, and had its world première at CANNES at the 46th International Critics Week in 2007.
