Tempest Desert

Tempest Desert

directed by:

Talita Maia

"After moving to the US to become an illustrative artist, Laura gets sidetracked with meaningless jobs and vapid friendships. She searches for unhealthy ways to cope with the lack of real connections with people, as well as discouragement when it comes to her dreams.
By chance, she meets a stranger that reminds her of the potential she always carried within.
TEMPEST DESERT is about the feeling of not belonging and the struggle to stay real to yourself at a place of discomfort.
Is criticism of the opportunist mentality prevalent in big cities and an exploration on how vulnerable people tend to get treated. It also touches on dealing with depression and anxiety. Despite delving into darker topics."
