Tela Plana (Flat Screen, 2019), is a video about a television that is not working. It is the impromptu footage of a small screen that broadcasts something that was, or still is, or is trying to be, or already was or will never be. Tela Plana (Flat-panel Display) is the name in portuguese to describe the technology used to transmit visual content on most televisions and monitors nowadays. This name is a pun as the sound resembles Terra Plana/Flat Earth. A ironic tribute to the mariners, the viewers and the browsers and all the impossible expectation to find the clear and luminous picture of the Truth.
