Federico Actis

Brazil, Drama/Mystery, 2011

Gisela lives with her husband, Roberto, and their maid, Luiza, in an upper-middle class apartment in Rio de Janeiro. Roberto is always away, and Gisela ends up spending most of her time alone with Luiza. She feels something is not right with Luiza, but doesn't know exactly what it is. Soon, strange events start happening in the apartment, but, who is causing them? This short followed Sholl's acclaimed short film , which won the Teddy Award for Best Short Film (Berlin), and based on these and other projects, Sholl was selected to participate in the 23rd Session of the Cannes Cinéfondation Résidence.
