A History of Mutual Respect

Portugal, 2010 (MIFF 2011, Shorts showing before features)

Director: Gabriel Abrantes, Daniel Schmidt

Eccentric and disquieting, this film follows two cynical and worldly young Europeans (played by the film's directors) who travel to Latin America seeking pure exotic sensuality in the third world. Unprepared for and gradually disenchanted with their metaphorical journey, their jungle encounter with lost innocence ensures that their worlds will part forever.
