Time machine shifted this little island 150 years back in time. No cars, no motorcycles. No paved roads. Horses, bicycles, and the tiny Jesus figure on a hill above Rio de Janeiro. Chequered history full of episodes of glory and poverty, going through cycles of being forgotten and rediscovered again. This is here where, in a safe distance from the frenzy of Rio, one of the most intriguing mathematicians fixed his philosophical retreat. He will be portrayed in one of the movies I’m currently working on.

And for now – day and night in Paquetá.
