The actual correspondence of a young Jewish couple separated by the fear of persecution in Nazi Germany is recovered by their grandchildren 80 years later. A Thousand Kisses presents a love story tainted by the harsh historical context of its time, with a light touch and real-life poetry.



Richard Goldgewicht has directed a broad mix of films that range both in live action, animation, documentary and narrative. With a strong interest on international themes, Goldgewichts’ editorial and musical background have generated an eclectic mix of films from his award winning short Blue Rondo (2000), inspired by Dave Brubeck’s experimental Jazz track Blue Rondo a la Turk and his comical portrayal of the Middle-Eastern conflict in Tel Aviv (2004), to his feature debut “Pablo” (Rotterdam Film Festival Premiere, 2012). “Pablo” centers around Pablo Ferro’s contributions to the world of film title design and his mark on the 1960’s New York counterculture.

In addition to “Lost Town” (2012), Richard is also finishing work on the feature length documentary “Gameplay” (2013), about the history and future of video games while developing a slate of narrative films including the sci-fi thriller “Send Her My Love”, the Spanish language ”Clandestino”, and “Futebol”, based on Alex Bellos’ book “Football, Brazilian Way of Life”, which he plans to film in Rio de Janeiro.

Goldgewicht splits his time between his native Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles.
