“ This independent movie, that is of clear conceptual approach, addresses the silting of Sepetiba Bay with the story of a fisherman João and his wife Isaura.

Due to the environmental belligerence, João is forced to take his boat farther and farther to fish, which irreversibly affects the relationship with his wife. In a movie with nearly no dialogue, in which time and nature are also protagonists, Eveline and Oswaldo offer us an environmental drama without sinking in politically correct truistic speech, with an own poetic and images that make us reflect on how the forced imbalance with nature affects our lives directly or indirectly.”

Ricardo Cota, critics from the newspaper “O DIA“ .

Press Book ENGLISH





Sinopse:  A fisherman promises his young wife to bring her all the fish in the world if she stops to undo the crochet and do it again. He is forced to go further in search of fish.

Increasingly lonely, she continues to crochet with the belief the threads will bring him back. João returns with extravagant gifts from the sea, until one day he disappears on the horizon. Amid environmental degradation, abandoned boats looming on the shores, like a huge cemetery of a rare beauty and Isaura still waits for João.


Further Away, an independent film that through little dialogue and two characters depicts a process that happens anywhere in the world – environmental and relationships degradation. It´s a contemplative film that naturally guides Isaura to keep walking in her dogged pursuit of João, between empty and abandoned boats looming as a big cemetery of rare beauty. A long crochet builds the narrative that connects her with nature and with her missing husband, João – the fisherman, who rises as a myth.
