THE GIRL WITH THE OCCUPIED EYES, A Menina com os Olhos Ocupados | Animation short. Written and directed by André Carrilho. A girl wanders through the city, countryside, beach, always clutching a phone from which she never takes her eyes off. Along the way, she comes across a group of characters that include a bear, dolphins, pirates, an alien. Everyone tries to captivate her and draw her attention, but she is indifferent to everything around her. After a series of adventures that include a brief space trip, the girl lands in a circus and climbs up a roller coaster. What no one expected was that, during the dizzying journey, the phone would slip out of her hands, only to fall apart on the ground. Sadness soon sets in but won’t stay for long. After all, with her eyes freed, the girl only has to gain: she can finally pay attention to the world around her and join who is calling her to play.
