Futuro Beach is a 2014 co-production between Brazil and Germany, directed by Brazilian-born and Berlin-based Karim Aïnouz. Starring Wagner Moura and Clemens Schick, it tells a story spanning many years of the chance meeting, in the midst of a tragedy, of a Brazilian lifeguard and a German veteran, and their ensuing relationship.
An absolute delight for cinema lovers and camera geeks, Futuro Beach (Praia do Futuro) is a moving drama centered on the human emotion of fear. The film portrays a lifeguard at the Brazilian Futuro Beach named Donato (played by Wagner Moura). As two German tourists are struggling in the rip tide, Donato springs into action – and unknowingly dives head first into his first experiences with the frailty of human life.
