PHOBOS

A film by Nina Hiraoka

Brazil


"PHOBOS is an unfiltered, raw look into the deep fear that grows within a human being when persecution and violence have become an everyday experience. A beautifully shot look into love and trauma. A must see." 

-MOONFAZE FEMINIST FILM JOURNAL

A note from the filmmaker:

We, the whole crew of PHOBOS, went to college in a really small town in the middle of nowhere, and our classes were at night. After 9:30pm there would be nobody on the streets but us, and it always felt like everyone could tell we were outsiders. Soon started the rumors about bizarre encounters the students would have late at night with the habitants, and the moment we began wondering, the story of Phobos emerged.
