Sheylla shares memories of journeys that brought her to Paris. She’s preparing to leave again, but on which path when she can go in any direction?

At the edge of Paris, where the rivers of the Seine and Marne meet, Sheylla shares memories, encounters and feelings from the journeys that have brought her here. We can see that she's preparing to leave again, but which path should she choose when she can go in any direction?

The Golden Triangle [Triângulo Dourado] is composed from homegrown, handmade, slightly fragile elements. With a bike, a 16mm camera, a poem in my mind and a cast of non-professional actors, I've tried to say something about travel, love, loneliness and the distances that link them.
