Flora is a summer love story set on the island of Floranopolis, Brazil. This dual screen short is a meditation on the landscape and beauty of Floripa, as well as an exploration of memories surrounding a lost relationship. In Flora, memories of place, and memories of person become one.
Writing and shooting ‘Flora’ all took place within a 2 week period whilst visiting Brazil in April 2019. The film was primarily written in São Paulo, Brazil’s business capital, and takes the perspective of someone longing for nature and beauty, lost in the cities oppressive landscape.
