IMPLAUSIBLE THINGS is a laboratory of images. It deals with found footage and materials that are scattered and random by nature.
It started with a box that was found by chance, filled with old 16 mm films – the raw material for what was to come. New paths and possibilities emerged, as the old meanings were lost, abandoned and replaced.
Consisting entirely of original text and soundtrack, IMPLAUSIBLE THINGS is set as a sort toolbox in which repetitions, redundancies and loops distort the idea of linear temporality and intransigent reality.

11th IndieLisboa International Film Festival (2014)
It all starts with a box filled with films. As if the meaning of things had been lost, a path of possibilities, that lean on randomness, appears. An extraordinary mise en abyme fills 7 chapters using found footage in a stimulating narrative and sonorous construction. The plurality of sensory memory, as a roll of film that unfolds, resonates in this exploration of the world, mankind, space and time.
