Everyday, a father and his son jump with a parachute from a vertiginous cliff, to go to the village on the ground, far away where they sell the ice they produce.

Portuguese director, animator, illustrator, and musician, he combines his musical background with the practice of authorial animation, always taking on the role of composer and sometimes instrumentalist in the films he directs. In 2022 he was awarded at Cannes Film Festival for Ice Merchants, arranging, as he often does, a live performance with the musical score.
