A Vermelha/ The Red was Vila Franca de Xira, so named by PIDE, during the time of the Estado Novo. This film brings us echoes of a city that contained a multiplicity of places — whether private or institutional houses — used by the antifascist resistance of the era. These, and those responsible for them, are now revisited and interviewed.
