Les États généraux du film documentaire 2012 Rescreenings Trás-os-Montes

Margarida Martins Cordeiro, António Reis
1976 - Portugal - Couleur - 111'

"The evocation of a province in northeastern Portugal, where historical and secular roots intertwine with those of the neighboring village, united by the river Douro. The children, the mothers, the women, the old people, the home, the land. Every-day life, bizarre happenings, handicrafts that are disappearing, susbistence farming. Erosion. Time and distance. The presence of those no longer present, of all those who have gone on towards other horizons. A poem inspired by Trás-os-Montes region and interpreted by its inhabitants". (António Reis and Margarida Cordeiro)
