31 Aug 2021 | A Metamorfose dos Pássaros – The Metamorphosis of Birds (PT 2020, Catarina Vasconcelos)

PT 2020, D: Catarina Vasconcelos, C: Manuel Rosa, João Móra, Ana Vasconcelos, Henrique Vasconcelos, Doc, 101’, Orig. with Eng. subs, DCP

Beatriz Vasconcelos raised six children in the mid-20th-century, while her husband Henrique spent most of his time at sea. After her death, she started living on within her family: in photos, memories, fantasies. One of them was that of a tree imagined by her infantile granddaughter Catarina. Grown up and confronted with the experience of losing her own mother, Catarina creates – with a small budget and her relatives acting – an intimate elegy full of precisely arranged enactments, enriched with the colours, sounds and lights of the seas and forests of Portugal.
