The Carnival in Rio is a celebration of indulgence. Beginning as a Portuguese holiday, the Carnival or “Entrudo” represents the entry into the weeks of lent. Those who partake in lent practice restraint and frugality, and the Carnival is meant to act as a release before this long rest. The Carnival is about celebrating differences, and indulging in different cultures together as one.
This short video was meant to reference the spirit of Carnival, having the water represent human indulgence, filling up to the brim until it slowly peaks over the edge, entering Lent.
