Gabriel Abrantes - Reality is just another fiction

© Daniel Pook / Short Talks 2017
Gabriel Abrantes made twenty short films in ten years and we've seen his work screened at the Berlinale Shorts a couple of times without ever talking to him. This finally changed when he returned to Berlin with a comedic drama about a flying robot.

"I'm a big believer in the power of chance and chaos - especially during film shoots." - The emphasis added to the end of this sentence isn't really necessary, though, for Gabriel sees the whole world as a hyper realistic stage. To face its complex problems for him there's no better way than poetry, humor and everything else art got at its disposal.

Thanks to "3 Minutes Sur Mer" for being so kind to letting us film in their restaurant!
