A short film called Pastrana

By reliving memories, images and conversations, downhill skateboarder Melissa Brogni seeks to build a tribute to her friend Pastrana. As she reclaims the past, with the help of her friends and family, Pastrana's inherent presence helps her fill the silence and better understand time.

I really enjoyed this film, it shares Pastrana's life that is unknown outside of Brazil. You get a glimpse into the Brazilian scene, their love for downhill, and why Pastrana was so special. 


A short film by Melissa Brogni and Gabriel Motta. Features Melissa Brogni, Allysson Pastrana, Miguel Moreira, Allyce Freitas Moreira, Carlos Paixão, Cristian Henz, Victor Ludwig, João Berlitz, Joseane Nascimento, Luciano Wiest.
