Born in 1949 in Bahia Northern Brazil I Remember is a fictional -autobiographical story steeped in the traditions of northern Brazil.

The story mirrors Edgard's life, full of humour, larger than life characters as well as the tale of his journey to reconcile the differences between his upbringing and the new sexual liberation of the era.

Inspired by Fellini's classic great Amarcord, which is translated as 'I Remember' in some Italian dialects, the story follows the bizarre and at times surreal events that occur in normal life.
