      Hi Taran, thanks for getting in touch. Yes almost 3 years and still in the making. As we explained the money we received through kickstarter was used to pay our first production trip to Brazil when we shot for 15 days contacting lots of artists so this phase was accomplished with great success and the content we got is no less then priceless. Since then we have been facing a few set backs but never gave up. Recently we got back into editing and are planning a next push for soon. Please stay connected at our Facebook page where we have been posting new updates or get in touch here. I am sure we already watched our trailers right? Thanks! Artur

      Hi Rodrigo, we have been posting a lot about projects updates and the rewards. Are you in Brazil?
      Most of them were sent but maybe we missed each other. We are in Sao Paulo right now, if you are around in can go meet you even( or you can come meet us at MIS where we have a workshop going) Either way I will be in touch soon.
      Best, Artur

      Hi Ben, how are you? We are currently sending the rewards finnaly. After coming back from our successful tripBrazil with the footage we had some trouble getting things moving again. We have been sending thel rewards in different batches so we will be sending yours as well. I have your information and will be sending you the posters soon ( they are all printed finally) and the same for the mixtape which for some reason you never got it ( maybe you were the only who not received ! our bad! ) . I am sorry it took that long but we spent a lot of our efforts on the planning of our final production push. We will be updating the blog with news soon. We are putting up a new website and we also did some filming in the last semester of 2012 although we were still not funded . So, I am sorry again . Thanks! Artur and Joel

      Is there any update on the posters and the mixtape? These were both due in November 2011. I was a $50 backer but haven't received anything, and haven't been kept informed. The last update that mentioned the posters was February 2012, almost 1 year ago. We wanted to support the movie, but you did have a responsibility to follow through on what you promised. Making the movie is only one part of your responsibility.

      Hi François ! And thanks for being in touch! I am sorry for the lack of news in the last months. We have been really busy with grant rights and fund rising in Brazil so we can take another production trip. Its a very tedious and demanding job but extremely necessary at this point. We also managed to film a very special characterr of our story performing at Tropicalia In Furs. Suely from the legendary psychedelic group Suely e os Kanticus visited New York and performed for the fisrt time in 30 years at our beloved Tropicalia. It was a great score for our film. We are also worjking on a trailer featuring all the footage we shot in Brazil early this year.
      I promise to keep feeding this page with news as things are starting to move forward again. Thanks for your support and be sure this film will get made. Keep in touch!
