Last Days of Emanuel Raposo

Diogo Lima

Portugal
2021, 47'

Whether we classify it as a mockumentary or a pseudocumental short, this movie is a fun journey through the last days on the job of the presenter of the Azorean television variety program “Meia Hora com Emanuel Raposo”.

Emanuel Raposo was born in 1934, on the island of São Miguel. Initially known as “The Weather Boy”, Raposo quickly climbed the stairs of the Azorean radio, becoming famous for the broadcast Cartas do Atlântico. Stardom was achieved years later with his show Meia-hora com Emanuel Raposo. In 1992 he suddenly abandoned television, becoming a businessman known for his jams and his restaurant in São Brás – Raposo. A making-of from the last episode of his show, signed by his nephew, brings surprising revelations. This information was obtained from the Emanuel Raposo fan club. Justice for Emanuel Raposo! (Carlos Ramos)
