Furtado, Jorge. Ilha das Flores [Isle of Flowers]. Porto Alegre: Casa de Cinema de Porto Alegre, 1989. 35 mm, 12 min.

A tomato is planted, harvested and sold at a supermarket, but it rots and ends up in the trash… Isle of Flowers follows it up until its real end, among animals, trash, women and children. And then the difference between tomatoes, pigs and human beings becomes clear.(Source: Casa de Cinema de Porto Alegre)
