Intangible (Intangível), an original screenplay by Julia Camara, started as a scene selected for the showcase presented by The WGAW Writers with Disabilities Committee 1st Annual “Disability Scene.” Julia went on to partner with lifelong friend actress and theater director, Renata Hallada. Although Julia was born and raised in Brazil, most of her filmmaking experiences took place in the United States. This was Julia’s fourth filmmaking endeavor in Brazil and spoken in Portuguese (Julia’s first language). It was an amazing and rewarding experience for Julia to be able to complete this film shot in her hometown of Sao Paulo. Using mostly volunteer labor and a skeleton crew, Julia and Renata were able to complete principal photography in one very long day.
