Set in Brazil's political democratization of the 80s, in a Salvador that was experienced by the author, as well as myself, the film has a teenage libertarian ideas living his political awakening and discovering love. “Depois da Chuva” will hit screens in March 2014, along with the 30th anniversary of the movement of the “Diretas Já and will be distributed by the Space Movies.

To see this part of our lives been turned into a film is just delightful. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go to Brazil at the time of the production, so I could join Crac! for the show scene with Dever de Classe. Nevertheless, it is a great pleasure to have our old recordings as part of the soundtrack of the film, and to have this moment of Brazilian history brought to the big screen.
