Hearts in Paris

I know, I know, you guys thought this blog was dead. I'm so sorry I haven't been updating it more often, I really am. It's just that life is still a little complicated here in Paris: finding my place in this city, learning the language, looking for a home, for a job, all this things have been consuming all my time (and my thoughts). Sometimes I find myself out of breath with all the information and situations I deal with every day in this whole adventure.

Anyway, I just released a new video that is a record of an installation/intervention/manifest created by a friend of mine. He once had this idea of putting polystyrene hearts on statues all over the city (he started in São Paulo, where he's based and soon the project spread all over Brazil and throughout the world). The "movement" (as he likes to call it) is named: Aqui bate um coração, which means: Here, there's a beating heart, and his idea is to remind people about love and about the fact that the big cities we live in also belong to us, its inhabitants. I hope you guys like it!

The song I used in this film is called L'amie d'un Italien, a duet with French singer Camille that was released in the album Happy Mistake, by Raphael Guallazi.
