Ashore

by Leonor Teles

Ashore portrays the life of a singular fisherman in an ancient riverfront community near Lisbon.
Divided between the quiet solitude of the river and the family ties that wash him ashore, the film follows Albertino Lobo, as nature renews itself with each season cycle.

Djon Africa

by Filipa Reis and João Miller Guerra

Miguel Moreira, also known as Tibars, also known as Djon África, learns that genetics can be cruel when his physiognomy - as well as some of his strong personality traits - denounce him, straightaway, as his father’s son; someone he has never known.
This intriguing discovery leads him to try to find out who this man is. All he knows about him is what his grandmother, with whom he has always lived, has told him. A raving curiosity makes him decide to go look for him. Following the journey of John Tibars to meet his father we will also encounter the territory of the dream that haunts memories, desires or mythologies of a good part of those who maintain their cultural roots and the genesis of their identity in the African continent. Tibars lives two identities in conflict and at the same time in harmony. What’s living in a ghetto in Portugal and being an African without being it? This ambivalence finds a projection of a lifetime in this adventure. Africa appears here with a whole load of imagination, in the projection not only of the place, but also of its essence, of its belonging.

by José Filipe Costa

Batrachian's Ballad

by Leonor Teles

“Simultaneously strange and familiar, distant and near, disquieting and seductive, outsider and cosmopolitan, Gypsies are shrouded in an aura of ambiguity. They cannot be said to be invisible, as they hardly go unnoticed.”

Daniel Seabra Lopes in Deriva Cigana, 2008

Like the Gypsies, ceramic frogs don't go unnoticed to a careful observer. Batrachian's Ballad comes about in a context of ambiguity. A film that intervenes in the reality of Portuguese everyday life, as a form of fabling about a xenophobic behaviour.

The Indispensible Practice of Vagueness

by Filipa Reis and João Miller Guerra

“To beget something new through things which aren’t exactly new.”

Manuel Castro Caldas

Ar.Co embodies each person’s geography, it escapes normalisation. Each individual’s experience is his own. This film is my experience, our experience. Pieced together from the school’s archive, from recordings of classes by Manuel Castro Caldas and from conversations at home.

Trading Cities

by Luísa Homem and Pedro Pinho

In 2008, the growing tourism industry of Cape Verde was frozen. The building of many hotels and resorts by foreigner companies had to be stopped due to a shortage of sand. The sand industry, primary resource for the production of concrete, had reached a dramatic level, endangering the beaches. This event caused a huge euphoria among the businessmen of Mauritania. A great number of trucks started to flow to the Nouakchott port, where many boats sail out to feed the tourist constructions in Cape Verde. Trading Cities starts in Lisbon on a cargo ship. We will undertake an Atlantic route that re‐enacts these daily travels, in order to highlight the physical and social transformations in the landscape that these exchanges produce.
