An environmental policeman stunned by the death of his wife, a fire and the mysterious appearance of a pink dolphin on a Rio de Janeiro beach. At first it may not make sense, but everything is connected on Netflix's new original Brazilian series, Invisible City. What if the legends you always heard about were real and hidden among us? Invisible City releases its official trailer and key art. Premiering on February 5th, it is the first live-action project by Carlos Saldanha, Brazilian director nominated for an Oscar and known for the animated franchises Ice Age and Rio, in addition to the animation Ferdinand.
With seven episodes, Invisible City brings relevant and current themes such as environmental preservation, the rescue of Brazilian popular culture, in addition to exploring human relationships through mystics and thriller. Starring Marco Pigossi and Alessandra Negrini, the cast is completed by Jessica Córes, Fábio Lago, Wesley Guimarães, Manu Diegues, Julia Konrad, José Dumont, Victor Sparapane and Áurea Maranhão, among others.
