Fiction (11'), Brazil, 2014
Director: Henrique Faria
Music: Felipe Hickmann
Lala (Ariane Gomes) has trouble sleeping during a stormy night. In a playful and loving way, her mother Eugenia (Leticia Sabatella) teaches her how not to fear nature, while talking about Lala’s deceased father (Andrew Knoll) for the first time.
Building on a previous collaboration with diretor Henrique Faria (I Still Love You), O Balé da Chuva features a meditative, bitter-sweet piano track that is closely knitted with on-screen action. Music for the ballet scene was inspired by the ambience of late romantic waltzes.
