Futuro Beach (Portuguese: Praia do Futuro) is a 2014 Brazilian-German drama film directed by Karim Aïnouz, and starring Wagner Moura, Clemens Schick and Jesuíta Barbosa. The film had its premiere in the competition section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.[1][2]


In the film, shot in Fortaleza and Berlin, Wagner Moura plays the lifeguard Donato, who works at Praia do Futuro. When a German tourist loses his life in a drowning, Donato feels the death of the tourist was his fault and begins a journey to escape from his present self. Donato leaves for Berlin in search of his German lover, Konrad, whom he had met ten years earlier at the Praia do Futuro and saved from drowning. Whenever he drifts away, his younger brother, Ayrton (Jesuita Barbosa), brings him back.[3]
