“Together” is a creative short film challenging us to fight for a world of greater equality and respect. Shot in 16mm film on the barren, industrial south side of Lisbon, the film utilises handwritten typography and a simple score of jazz drums to focus the viewer’s attention on music artist Carla Prata’s spoken-word performance.

The story behind the film
Director’s Statement: “The last few years have been a great opportunity for the world to perform some introspection and recalibration, and in founding our new creative studio LaPush, we wanted to make sure that we did so for the right reasons, surrounded by the right people, focusing on work that we feel is positive to the world and the human experience. So we decided to make a launch film challenging us all to be better and to fight for a new world of greater equality and respect. We reached out to music artist Carla Prata to collaborate with us in transmitting this message through a spoken-word performance, and we are super grateful for her time and contagious energy in the project, and to the whole team that came together to bring this film to life.” – Del and Marco.
