So small, looking all grown up

This film combines fictional and documentary treatment and uses photographic archives, real images and the oral testimony of women from the regions of Trás-os-Montes, Beira, Alto and Baixo Minho who, between the 1940s and 1980s, came to Porto to work as domestic servants.

Tânia Dinis continues her refined and engaging work of telling stories through archives of images and oral records. Here, she rescues from invisibility some of the women who didn’t have time to be children, sent from the villages to be servants in wealthy homes in the big cities. A common practice between the 1940s and 1970s and a reflection of a gray, poor and illiterate country. It is never too much to remember the situation and position of these women, especially at a time when we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the revolution. – Carlos Ramos
