audiovisual production + product design + post-production + poster

At the beaches of Acaraju, there are people selling the Picuí ice pops. Many of them believe in the myth of Eva Maria, the girl in white. At Mosqueiro Beach, people report seeing this entity during sunsets, while Ave Maria plays in Brazilian radio stations.

The poster for the film was made based on the illustration used in Caetano Veloso’s “1968” album cover. The cover’s author is Rogério Duarte, although he claims the illustration used isn’t his, for his work was created upon the “fake”. Criticized at the time for such a revelation and very admired by us for his visual conception, we decided to use the same illustration for the film poster – imitating not only the illustration, but the act of reproducing it in a different medium.
