Imagined like a matryoska doll, «The Forest of the Lost Souls» (A Floresta das Almas Perdidas) is an unsettling horror tale inside of a coming of age drama, with a poetic drama about life giving away into a suspenseful second act.

The Forest of the Lost Souls» is being produced by Anexo 82, a production company based in Oporto (Portugal), with the support of several institutions. Post-production will take place at the 2003 Studio in Dubai (UAE).

The film will be the directional debut for José Pedro Lopes after a long carrer as a producer and director of short films. The cast includes Daniela Love, Jorge Mota, Ligia Roque, Mafalfa Banquard, Lília Lopes and Tiago Jácome.

Anexo 82 plans to release the film in early 2016.
