PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil – V2 Cinema presents the short feature THE SOUL DETECTIVE, starring American filmmaker David Lynch, on www.v2cinema.com. Written and directed by Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro (who’s also producing with Letícia de Cássia), the film follows a psychic investigation inside the mind of a recently deceased man, before all his memories vanish. THE SOUL DETECTIVE is the fifth and last episode from Brazilian web series Boundaries of Thought: THINK TANK. Together, the five shorts show 54 minutes of footage on-line.
A conversation with the director of Mulholland Drive (2001) was only the beginning of the creative process of THE SOUL DETECTIVE. “The interview was not made to be a piece of ‘cinéma vérité’ [cinema of truth], but as a sound and vision experiment, to see how an opinion can become a fiction completely different from its original intent”, says Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro. “The short was structured over atmosphere and instinct, with the use of free association”, adds the Brazilian director.
