Next Step 2016


Feature Film

In KA, his first feature film project, Pedro Peralta places the story somewhere in a future where after death, the government grants the deceased a “Half-Life” period, during which the resurrected can seek his redemption. Sebastião, who wakes up dead, decides to spend this time at the Saint-Lazarus Hospital, where he befriends Madalena. Through this improbable friendship, they will both search for meaning in these last moments. With this allegorical project, Pedro aims to carry on what he started in Ascension, to play with time and space cinematographically to best serve the narrative.
