As Cinzas De Deus (Ashes of God)

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

As Cinzas de Deus is a visual poem in a universe of realities.
 
Set in the ruins of an abandoned, once grandiose 19th century city, the film follows a woman, Helo, entering a world of memory and feeling, where characters - perhaps ‘trapped souls’ - are living and re-living moments from an unspecified past.
 
Helo penetrates their dream-like reality, visions of her own subconscious, absorbs them, challenges them, releases them. Their memory bank gradually erased, they disappear into the ether. 
 
In a climactic finale she confronts her own personal nemesis. She survives the life-and-death confrontation, and, left behind, she dances alone, immersed in dust and eternity.
