FLOATING HOUSE is a film whose theme is inscribed in the reflections of Portuguese colonialism and emigration, at the same time that it addresses Jules Verne’s imaginary about the 19th century Amazon and the devastation and contemporary desertification of the tropical forest. Its cosmology results from indigenous peoples of the Amazon, such as the Ticuna or the Puyanawa. FLOATING HOUSE was written by Ana Pissarra and José Nascimento and was produced by José Mazeda / Take 2000.
The film is dedicated to the Amazon Forest, to the Indians who fight for its preservation and to everyone who maintains a loving relationship with it.
