Heaven's Mirror: A Portuguese Voyage
Joshua Dylan Mellars
2011 - 70 min - Digital vidéo - États-Unis

English summary :
"Heaven's Mirror" is filmmaker Joshua Dylan Mellars' mystically wild and lushly romantic fado journey : The filmmaker travels from the ironwork balconies and narrow cobbled streets of Lisbon's Alfama to the cool bungalow porches of India’s Goa, from the salt sprayed clapboard of New England's former whaling ports to the dusty bullrings of Central California in search of the meaning of saudade, the essence of fado. Like Proust, fado music tries to recover lost times, ephemeral feelings, time moved on, laments of what could have been if only.... In "Heaven's Mirror", Mellars travels a geographical odyssey and an inner quest, mixing love with desire, memory with longing. Mimicking the Portuguese voyages of old, the filmmaker also sails an inner sea to learn from those who have lived and sung life in fado--for somewhere, somehow, sometime, we all must travel fado's terrain. "Heaven’s Mirror" features top fado performers Ana Moura, Camané, Mafalda Arnauth, Carlos do Carmo, Helder Moutinho, Joana Amendoeira, Katia Guerreiro, Carlos Gonçalves, Celeste Rodrigues, Jorge Fernando and Tereza Tarouca.
