This year, the program include 5 portuguese films: 2 feature films and 3 short films.
On the first day, 15th of November, the feature film “Colo”, by Teresa Villaverde, portuguese director who picked up awards in Cannes, Venice, Valencia, and even the Golden Globes. “Colo”, which means “Hug” in English, was presented at Berlinale official competition.
“The film is a very present and almost serene reflection on our common path as European societies today, about our isolation, about our perplexity in facing the difficulties that arise, about our life in the cities and within our families. It is a growing tension that never explodes.” (Teresa Villaverde)
On the second and last day, the programme includes one feature film and 3 short films. The feature film “Pilgrimage” (Peregrinação, in portuguese), by João Botelho, presents a literary adventure story and a musical epic poem.
The short film “Flores” (Flowers), by Jorge Jácome, is followed by the animation “War of the Worlds”, by Manuel Brito. The documentary “The Dead” (Os Mortos), by Gonçalo Robalo, finishes the program with memories from his beloved family members who have deceased: The Dead.
