The King’s Body

João Pedro Rodrigues

João Pedro Rodrigues | Portugal | 2013 | 30 min. | O.V. Portuguese, Spanish and Galician subtitled in Spanish and English

Rodrigues auditions Galician men to find one who could play Afonso Henriques, first king of Portugal. Playing with the history of the ancient city of Guimaräes, cradle of the kingdom of Portugal, he gives an ironic twist to the old saying (referring to the eternal rivalry with Galicia: “Dunha puta e un vigués, naceu o primeiro portugués”.
