MIGRA is the space in wich our ideas transit and take shape, where we create and develop audiovisual projects that showcase our experience in fiction, documentary, experimental video and video installation formats.

We believe that every audiovisual piece requires a development process that permits the exploration and consolidation of ideas, arising from sensitivity and intuition in order to succeed in creating projects which represent both to ourselves and  those around us.

around the sun ( working title)

 

FEATURE FILM DIRECTED BY YGOR GAMA 

STAGE: DEVELOPMENT | PARTICIPATION IN LABS ( BERLINALE TALENTS 2016 ) | LOOKING FOR FUNDINGS

AFTER 8 YEARS
YOU ARE BEING DEPORTED
TODAY IS YOUR LAST DAY 
IN BERLIN
YOU RUN THROUGH THE CITY
YOU ENJOY EACH MOMENT
YOU SEE BERLIN
AS YOU NEVER DID BEFORE
YOU WISH #SPRING
WILL SOON GUSH OUT
IN THE SCHENGEN 
#BORDER
[ You can not choose all the events that happen to you, but you can choose not be reduced by them ] After hearing this phrase from a left politician in the UK, and being myself threaten in the last months by the German Government, i decided to start an adventure through geopolitical borders. I'm travelling constantly between Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo, to make a joyful film, about the last day of my character in Berlin. I'm interested in what he does, how he enjoys the city, his loved places and people. I'm interested also, that he doesnt have any place to go, and that he is fighting not just to conquer cities and territories, but also against his fears. He is fighting to transcend the #border. Moving so faster, I trust we will be able to fly.
