A meeting of stories, stories of encounters and farewells.

The act of telling stories is a human need, linking events, situations, looks and interpretations. Narrating these facts in a playful and passionate way, seducing and transporting the listener to this universe, is the role of the storyteller. This is how Contæncontros invites the viewer to travel through different situations and places and also into himself.

In the company of good stories

Running Water
by Miriam Fontana

Running Water is an adventure of rivers and waters. Beginning with the birth of a small river, the offspring of rain, and the waters of a spring that flow between the stones, Running Water takes the viewer on a journey alongside the waters of the river. And there are so many surprises along the way!!! Who would say that the sea is not the only end of every path of a river and that the essence of water can reveal secrets that we can't even imagine?

Cerrado Hug
by Miriam Fontana

The video made for FUNARTE RespiroArte translates the drama of a woman character who inhabits this cerrado, the recovery of legendary stories, the fear of destruction of the land, and the desire for life to flourish. The argument of the text brings the idea that the fantastic creatures of the Brazilian cerrado left because the house where they lived no longer exists, due to so much deforestation and burning. The female character invokes the legendary figures of the region, Arranca Línguas, Mãe-de-Ouro, as well as Pé de Garrafa, Pai do Mato, Negro d'Água, to come to her aid. The Cerrado Hug video is above all an emphatic appeal that seeks to find resonance in the hearts of those who come to watch it, the spectators. Symbolically, the last image, the rain, is a reference to the sources of the rivers that flow in the cerrado. The region holds a gigantic water volume. Rain is a sign of the continuity of life and its presence is the certainty that the life cycle continues.
