The Heartbeats of Memory

This short film was shot in Super 8 in Japan. Although it was shot in Japan, it is not about Japan. It´s about the memories and how we use them, actually, to forget.

It is a journey through them, it´s the voice of our memory who speaks to ourselves. Trying to remember, trying to put some order in the past. Trying to manipulate us, but also accepting a the end that no matters how, we will keep the memories with us, forever.

The ancients believed that the memories were stored in the heart, and in fact in Latin to remember means, literally: To return to the heart.

The score was composed by Paulo Gallo, who created an amazing and delicate song which guides the journey.
