Drifts (Derivas) is a Portuguese feature-length film by Ricardo Costa (autobiography, comedy, docufiction, metafiction, experimental film [1][2] ). It is the second independent film from an autobiographical sequel trilogy on Time and human wanderings.[3]

The film is set in Lisbon, city which it portrays. Mists (opened at the Venice Film Festival in 2003 and released in New York at the Quad Cinema in 2011) is the first film of this trilogy. After Mists, Drifts is the second one.[4] The third and last film of the sequel is Cliffs (Arribas), film in production, in which the protagonist goes back to his homeland in a time travel.[5]
