Ilha das Flores (Isle of Flowers)
Jorge Furtado, Brazil 1989, 13:00 min

Furtado’s acclaimed short film explores the economic relationship between humans, animals and food. It makes us laugh, but the laughter quickly dies, when following the path of a Brazilian tomato from the field to the Isle of Flowers, Porto Alegre’s landfill.
