Misericórdia is a portrait of a community through the dreams of it's inhabitants.
I spent three months on the island of Itaparica in the state of Bahia, Brazil, gathering the dreams of people while filming scenes of their everyday lives. Soon that mixture of dreams and documentary triggered what could be called a third reality that belongs to the realm of magic: Misericórdia is a dream of dreams, evocative of the enchantment and ancestry of Bahia, the African heart of Brazil.
