In addition to “Alano”, “Disjointed”, “Remodeling” and “The gift”, another Brazilian short film that stands out in the “Curta Woofs” show, made by the SCRUFF app, is “Beat 97”, by Washington Calegari.
In the film’s plot, Álvaro was quarantined for 97 days without leaving home and uses delivery apps to order everything he needs. When the delivery man arrives at the building with another meal, an unexpected situation imposes a difficult decision on Álvaro. Based on the character’s flow of consciousness in dealing with his dilemmas and original beatbox compositions, the film explores the difficulties of social isolation and Álvaro’s attempts to occupy his time in a creative way.
The films of the show, which can be accessed for free through the “Events” tab, in the “Explore” tab of the SCRUFF app, will be available until March 25. SCRUFF is available on the App Store and Google Play.
