This video is based on Carlos Pontual´s family archive super 8 images filmed during the seventies. The original were filmed between 1972 and 1980, in some locations around the state of RIO, like a region called Lakes Region (Região dos Lagos), 70% based in a paradise city called Arraial do Cabo, and some of other places in the city of Rio de Janeiro (the Carnaval shoots, for example, were filmed at Rio Branco Ave, today´s one of the principal finantial avenues in RIO but on that time it was the place of the principal parade).
"I remember the day that Carlos invited me to direct the video, when he came to my studio with references based on Michael Gondry´s synchs and cuts, that i confess i became addicted to that!"
All of theses family images were filmed by his uncle Miguel Camolez (that we decided to credit him as a director, with the honors), and one of Carlos ideas around it was to preserve his family and be focused on the outdoor images, been very tropical and brazilian.
