The End of Amélia and Duarte

In this story we are guided through the relationship of Amélia and Duarte, two people that fell out of love and are trying to cope with the feelings that come after a relationship has ended.

Their relationship has the shape of an archive box and its contents illustrate the story of their breakup. We are guided through their separation as they try to divide, destroy and erase the memories of each other.

The film is made in pixilation and stop-motion and has the Technicolor feel of the 50s, portraying not only the surrealism of their actions, but also giving an ironic chromatic impression about the end of love.
