I made something with Ben and Anna a couple of weeks ago. This has no connection to Tras-Os-Montes but whilst writing my paper for Portuguese Cinema Culture and Identity class, I chanced upon a video of this talk and it explains a whole lot about what film is to me, and also about what the one above is about.

In a panel discussion held after the screening of Trás-os-Montes called “Harvard at the Gulbenkian 1.1 – Dialogues About Portuguese Film and World Cinema” held in November 22nd 2013, Vitor Gonçalves explains something about what he thinks Tras-Os-Montes asks of us in this passage:

“..I think that Antonio believed that movies were the only place to deal with the farewells that we have inevitably to say and to leave through our lives.”
