Aurora - The street that wanted to be a river

Aurora - A Rua que queria ser um rio (Portuguese)

Brazil | 10 min | Animation, Biography, Drama, History | 2021 | Short Film (Animation) | Portuguese

If the streets could talk, what would they say? Aurora is a sad and lonely street in a big city. Yet, on a rainy day, she remembers her trajectory and dreams about the future asking herself: is it possible for a highway to die?

বাংলা

যদি রাস্তারা কথা বলতে পারতো, তারা কী বলতো? অরোরা একটি বড় শহরের একটি বিষন্ন এবং একাকী রাস্তা। এক বৃষ্টির দিনে, সে তার গতিপথের কথা মনে করে এবং ভবিষ্যতের স্বপ্নের কথা ভেবে নিজেকে জিজ্ঞাসা করে: একটি রাস্তার পক্ষে কি মারা যাওয়া সম্ভব?

Original Language

Se as ruas pudessem falar, o que diriam? Aurora é uma triste e solitária rua de uma grande cidade. Em um dia de chuva forte, ela relembra sua trajetória e sonha com o futuro e se pergunta: é possível uma rua morrer?
