'Infinite Space' is a Brazilian drama directed by Leo Bello and tells the story of Nina (Gabrielle Lopes), a woman who, after being admitted to a psychiatric ward, ends up starting a journey into her own subconscious in a quest to find a path to a shared reality. The film's intention is to present a portrait of topics such as the mental health treatments for psychotic disorders, self-knowledge, the manifestation of the unconscious, symbolism, love and other subjects through the protagonist's perspective and experience.
