Raquelaria is a short film made in Portugal, 2020, by two friends, Dolores and Wynton Guess midst the Covid lockdown.

"I have trouble at times staying the course along this barren road 

falling into the cavernous depths of what remains. 

It should be that the walls remember each last touch glanced across the surface

turning back, wanting to know you were there. 

This lost highway of empty neon pulsates hypnotically into obscurity 

as the same lamp post illuminates the same pavement 

with painful regularity. The whiteness of the lines flicker by,

circulating back around with the will to exist just once more. 

I remember your last touch beneath the surface

with eyes that could fill an entire chamber. They stared firmly into mine

through the blood, rushing forward, of my will to love once more 

wanting so badly not to fall into tears, knowing you were there. 

If only I could fill these chambers again where the road extends as far as the emptiness echoes, inadequate in solitude"
