Tela Plana (Flat Screen, 2019) is a video about a television that is not working, an improvised footage of a small screen that shows a blank image with a non-stop noise. Tela Plana (Flat-panel Display) is the name in portuguese to describe the technology used to transmit visual content on most televisions nowadays. This title is a pun as the sound resembles Terra Plana/Flat Earth. A reverse homage to the navigators, the viewers and the browsers and their impossible expectation of finding the luminous picture of Truth.
