Cao Guimarães / BR, 2010 / 86 min.
What if René Descartes had travelled to Brazil? In this fictitious story, the great philosopher is confronted with his own doubts in the Amazon under the influence of hallucinogenic herbs. Rational thought is abandoned as he is immersed in a sensory experience of the world. Screened as part of the exhibition Locus: Apichatpong Weerasethakul – Cao Guimarães.
