    • Synopsis
    • In 2007, I recorded my therapy sessions. That which was supposed to be a recording experience soon became a film about my life. Throughout that year however, the camera’s interference in my therapeutic process revealed to be suffocating. When I decided to abandon the sessions, it was Lucia who broke down and revealed to me that there was another film in the footage.

      FILMETERAPIA is split into two complementary parts – the first shot in 2007, the second in 2016. Up until then Lucia had remained off-screen during the sessions. Eight years later she takes to the forefront as she observes her routine outside her office. Freed from her role as therapist, it is Lucia who today is going through an existentialist crisis. With editing commingling images from the director’s family archives with those of his therapist, Lucia and Felippe’s stories crisscross, while in the present they establish a new relationship: no longer as therapist and patient, but as filmmaker and character.
