Emma and Lola are in their early twenties and already know one thing or two about broken hearts, unbearable expectations, and misconceptions. During a summer holiday, what it's a simple escape to the tropical wilderness of the Everglades to forgive and forget, turns into a self-discovery journey, with daydreaming fantasies, childish games, and a quirky rebellion against roles and rules. 

Postcards From Last Summer, is a hypertextual coming-of-age film-essay. Build upon handwriting notes, off-screen narration, and tableaux vivants is an evocative snapshot about the need to find your true self.

The original music score was a collaborative work with Berlin-based composer, musician, and performer Ella Zwietnig –a member of Free The Work, and the Alliance for Women Film Composers– and her partner Florian Zwietnig, a prolific composer, sound designer, producer, and past member of the band Mediengruppe Telekommander. They created dreamy and ethereal soundscapes to enhance the summer-ish and evocative spirit of the film using analog and electronic instruments, vocals, and the Oberheim Matrix 1000 at Oguum Boguum Studios in Berlin, Germany & Ochsendorf, Austria, between June and September 2019.

Shot independently in 16mm during 2019 on locations at Everglades National Park and Miami, Florida; it features the Miami-born actress Isadora Leiva (Pig Skin, Death of a Fool) and Austrian-born actress and dancer Julia Steiner.
