It's really hard to define what we are: we are NOT a production company, we are NOT a collective, we are NOT a design studio, we are NOT an agency. We are a group of people that bonded in search for magnificence, to experience as much as we could and to be as near as possible to the multifariousness of the human experience. To understand the madness we were born in and try to give something back to the cosmos.

What Young People Call Music, EP02 - NOWNESS

The Falling Sky - What Young People Call Music

Starting out at Belém do Pará, Amazônia—the 'portal' to the Amazon—Nogari's sulphuric film, with nods to The Beach and Joseph Conrad's delirious The Heart of Darkness, blurs the boundaries between visual poetry and documentary reportage, referencing the transformative nature of music.

"It's a living diary of something that happened, a tale being told through time" explains the image-maker known for capturing hedonism and the high-life. "We don't know exactly when. A group of friends battling the impossibilities, knowing that there might be no place for them. 'Times are hard for dreamers' they say, and this couldn't be more accurate for Brazil nowadays."
