Some people live a full and happy life without a partner for many years in the belief that one day life will bring them true love. For one Brazilian woman in the film Eu Sabia Que O Nosso Dia Ia Chegar (I Knew Our Day Would Come) - this is the sentiment expressed in an award winning film.
Directed by German Dominguez Mairen, Eu Sabia Que O Nosso Dia Ia Chegar, is video poem about living your dreams and exploring the world in the hope that someone out there is walking a similar path, and one day you will meet.
This magical film was hand-picked as a winning entry by City Of God director Fernando Meirelles, in a series of brand new films supported by Johnnie Walker called The Walkers.
Meirelles chose the winning entries for the six short-feature films produced via crowdsourcing:
“As a filmmaker, I have always been moved by the Keep Walking spirit; after all, it was not easy to produce a movie in Brazil. The boldness of giving the brand’s voice to independent producers had me right away,” says the director, who was excited to see the progress of Brazil and real-life Brazilians, such as community dwellers, natives and street artists, portrayed on the big screen.
Watch this space for the fourth film in the series of six.
