After its launch at the Locarno Festival, where it received the Prize to the Best Director, and the Seville European Film Festival, where it was presented as “more than a film, an event”, here’s the Barcelona premiere of the new film by Pedro Costa, who adds another vital part to his series of films set in Fontainhas, a marginal district of the Portuguese capital. The return of his character Ventura, converted here into a trembling spectre, shows us the disinherited, the voice of those who are pointedly overlooked. Darkness tinges this uncompromising look at recent Portuguese history, from the Carnation Revolution of 1974 up to the present-day moment of confusion.
Attended by Pedro Costa.
