A Torre [The Tower] is a project produced with
materials collected during the production of the feature
film Extinction (2015), directed by Salomé Lamas and
produced by O Som e a Fúria (PT), in co-production
with Mengamuk Films (DE).

Maybe Kolja’s experiment of merging his body
(human) with the tree (nature) venturing into a border
zone between the earth and the sky is due to his
purity of spirit, to the grandeur of the idiots, or the
foolishness of the mystics; or is it all this together?
Maybe it is a symptom of the enlightened – or simply
an elaborated suicide.
