Curtas Vila do Conde: A rua da estrada

Graça Castanheira

Portugal, 2012, 24 min., Portuguese, HDCam



A rua da estrada, by Graça Castanheira, is based on the eponymous book by Álvaro Domingues, a geographer and professor at the University of Oporto Faculty of Architecture. The reflections on the transformation of the urban environment—the centripetal and organized city becoming a concatenation of non-places as the gateway to virtual spaces—come hand in hand with the register of old paths buried by highways, where there is an odd and hybrid cohabitation of rural and urban remains. Graça, sharing the open and entertaining spirit of the book, suggests a thoughtful and ironic view that reminds us of Agnès Varda’s method.
