Brazilian co-directors Filipe Matzembacher (BT 2016) and Marcio Reolon (Talents Buenos Aires 2014) charmed Berlinale audiences last year with their first feature film Seashore, which premiered in the Forum section. Their newest work, The Nest, is a melancholic and captivating miniseries that follows a young man, who while searching for his long-missed brother, finds a home amongst his brother’s friends and memories. The Nest was produced by the couple’s company with the contributions of their frequent collaborators, including producer Jessica Luz (TPM 2016), sound designer Tiago Bello (BT 2013) and editor Germano de Oliveira (BT 2016). The crew reunites for this screening of two episodes and to talk about how behind-the-scenes teamwork is a recipe for onscreen success.
