Evento do Facebook (Facebook Event) is a live expanded cinema installation on the use of social media. Conveying live-captured footage with pre-recorded scenes, the film explores an experimental setting of live action theater and live-cinema. The audience is brought into the stage where Alex's room, a middle class university student, is situated next to a screen. Both spaces coexist in and out of the plot through two points of view: from the perspective of the image produced by a camera held by a cinematographer that explores the scene in the stage and the stage itself.

This project was launched in 2014 as my bachelor honors thesis while part of the Media Studies program at the State University of Campinas. Soon it had the collaboration of more than 50 student and guest artists. The following year, the project was awarded the Student-Artist Grant from the University as an community outreach program to be presented in the region.

"I kept thinking about us, how we were together. How we should actually be. I think in the end I forgot to actually be anything"
