Portugal, 1976, 108 min
Evocation of a province, the Northeast Portuguese, whose historical roots, secular, not confuse the country’s brother, the Douro league. Children and mothers, women and children, house and land. Daily life, imagination, disappearing arts, the subsistence agriculture. Erosion. The time and distance. The absent presence of the departed to all horizons.
