António Reis, Margarida Cordeiro | Portugal | 1976 | 111 min. | V.O. en portugués subtitulada en español
A masterpiece of Portuguese cinema, according to Jean Rouch “the revelation of a new cinematic language”, a reference for generations of filmmakers to come. A portrait of the region of Trás-os-Montes (and imagination of an idea of things Portuguese), where the filmmakers spent years filming landscapes and towns and getting to know the locals (protagonists of the film on an equal footing with its directors). A melting pot of real-invented stories, mises-en-scène and texts, in which Reis and Cordeiro make every image resonate with the myths of the land, the folklore, the life cycles and the stories of those who live there.
