The Pink Cloud

Brazil, 2020 

Imagine being locked for years indoors due to a mysterious cloud that kills upon contact. While that may sound like COVID lockdowns, The Pink Cloud was made prior to the pandemic, and eerily captures isolated life with disquieting accuracy. In luli Gerbase’s debut feature, two casual acquaintances, Giovana and Yago, are locked together in an apartment after an unexplained life threatening pink cloud circles the globe. As time seems to both stop and fast forward through the film, the couple becomes the focus of this lo-fi sci-fi that examines human nature under strict confinement. 

DCP, color, 105 min. Director: Iuli Gerbase. Writer: Iuli Gerbase. With: Renata de Lélis, Eduardo Mendonça.
