    Films should speak for themselves. But a discussion of filmmaker intentions is often of interest, so I put this piece together to examine the motivations behind each of these films. No two of them have been alike -- each a different type of story, told in a different way.

      Retratos Vivos e uma comovente serie de retratos filmados em preto & branco ao som de uma emocionante trilha musical composta especialmente para os dois curta-metragens: "4 Rolls" e "Still". As imagens capturadas em 16mm com uma antiga câmera, a Arriflex ST, buscam retratar pessoas comuns em seu quotidiano, mostrando a diversidade multicultural que existe na cidade de Sydney/Australia. Os filmes tentam com que aqueles que o estão assistindo, venham a reflectir sob a possibilidade de todos nos seres humanos, sermos iguais? Independentemente da sua cor, sua religião, seu país e ou condição social. Somos diferentes sim, mas no final nao somos iguais? Mesmo com todas as nossas diferenças? Imagem e musica são a combinação perfeita para este projeto, permitindo que os espectadores observem e se sintam em conexão com aqueles que estão em frente a câmera. Retratos Vivos e um pequeno retrato da cidade de Sydney através de sua gente. E este projeto continua agora, aqui no Brasil e pelo resto mundo....

        A series of portraits - moments in time with people - filmed on 16mm TriX B&W Reversal Stock. Filmed and Directed by Gustavo Faraco Music by Patrick Nellestein, performed by Patrick Nellestein and Christina Christensen Edited and produced by Michael McLennan Filmed in and around Sydney over 2010. This was a continuation of work begun by Gustavo Faraco as a thesis student at Sydney Film School, '4 Rolls' (2009 Sydney Latin American Film Festival, 2009 Dungog Film Festival). It was the 10th film in the Secret Film Society's 10 Film Project. Where the film departs from '4 Rolls' is that more material was shot overall, the final film being more of an edited distillation of the work. This is the shorter version of the film, edited down for festival screenings.
