Produced by Luciano Romanieli

Ícaro seeks liberation from his job as an elevator operator. Based on the Greek myth of Icarus, the film investigates the psychology of a character who is emotionally and physically stuck. Interlacing Rio's dramatic architecture with dance and music, Ícaro is a poetic film which reflects the human psyche as well as Brazil's unique social context.
