PINK CLOUD, THE

[A NUVEM ROSA]

Picture a world in which everyone must stay inside for an indefinite period of time while a mysterious threat sweeps the globe. This is the world imagined by Brazilian filmmaker Iuli Gerbase in her feature debut THE PINK CLOUD, an eerily prescient sci-fi thriller, which was shot in 2019, an entire year before life started imitating art as the COVID-19 pandemic forced us all indoors. When a mysterious and lethally toxic pink cloud appears over an unnamed Brazilian city, interrupting a one-night stand between Giovana (Renata de Lélis) and Yago (Eduardo Mendonça) and forcing the world to shelter in place, the impromptu couple is forced to quarantine together in Giovana's high-rise apartment. As days turn into weeks, weeks into months and months into years, the two settle in for the long haul. But while Yago becomes acclimated to their sealed-off existence, Giovana grows addicted to virtual reality and is increasingly desperate for connection to the outside world. An intimate and all-too-familiar study of life in quarantine, THE PINK CLOUD thoroughly — yet inadvertently — captures the mood of 2020 with surprisingly thrilling and emotive results.
