Curtas Vila do Conde: The Miracle of Saint Anthony

Curtas Vila do Conde: The Miracle of Saint Anthony

Sergei Loznitsa

Portugal, 2012, 40 min., Portuguese, HDCam


To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the International Festival of Vila do Conde entrusted with four documentaries to four prestigious film directors linked to the Portuguese contest: Sergei Loznitsa, Helvécio Marins Jr., Yann González and Thom Andersen. O milagre da Santo António is the work presented by the Ucranian Loznitsa, who appeared at mid-June in the small town of Santo António de Mixões da Serra to document the famous celebration of the Day of his Patron. During that day, as part of a tradition that dates back centuries ago, and transmitted from parents to children, the local farmers take their animals (cows, horses, dogs, cats, chicken, rabbits, etc.) to the church to have them blessed.
