Violeta has it all: a loving husband, a beautiful child, a fulfilling career, and a new apartment near the beach. Like any normal day, she dives into her routine, gets ready for work, kisses her husband goodbye, and heads off on her bike commute through the hectic city of Rio de Janeiro. The tides violently change when she receives a stunning voicemail from her husband. He is leaving and never plans on returning. In shock and confusion, Violeta leaves work and floats heartbroken through the streets. Inspired by the song “Eye to Eye” by Brazil’s celebrated Chico Buarque, Aïnouz’s beautifully shot film draws visual parallels between the ocean, the luminescent city streets, and the characters’ inner turmoil as he portrays the brave 24-hour odyssey of a wounded woman mourning her lost love. (85 mins.)

Filmography: Madam Sata (02), Love For Sale (06), I Travel Because I Have To, I Come Back Because I Love You (09).

Winner of the Best Director Award at the Rio de Janeiro Film Festival.


Interests: Narrative Feature, Spanish Language.
