Portugal / 2017 / 177 minutes / DCP / Color
After establishing himself as an important documentarian, Portuguese director Pedro Pinho veers from neorealism to magical realism in this multilayered examination of the problems ensnaring his country. Beginning with everyday workers’ experiences of declining power and corporate greed in an elevator factory, Pinho adds testimonies and discussions about global capitalism – all before exploding into a musical climax about our endangered future. Directors' Fortnight FIPRESCI Prize winner, Cannes Film Festival.
