This could be video of the century. Usually regarded as one of the top twenty short films of all time , I helped make the subtitles for this during the last year, with the help of four people in Brazil, UK, and Japan. Up until now this was not available with English subs, except for one other site. The video itself is from an obscure French dvd with French overdubs, but it’s better quality video. The text is based on the original Brazil/Portuguese script, which we got copy of last year and spent about 3 months transferring text files back and forth and redoing this again and again. Our credits are at the end of the movie in the subs.. The original Portuguese Brazilian version on lower quality VHS with embedded English subs is here.
One of the best shorts I’ve ever seen. Enjoy Ilha Das Flores, Isle of Flowers, 1990, Jorge Furtado
