Metáfora ou tristeza virada do avesso

Catarina Vasconcellos

DV and Super-8 | Sound | Color | 32’ | 2014


A correspondence between a brother and sister in the midst of the anniversary of their mother’s death causes them to go on a journey to the past to understand the time where their mother lived and how their country, Portugal, was in the 70’s when a revolution took place. Mixing a family history with the history of Portugal, this film is a fight against oblivion.

Explanation of Light

Explanation of Light, is made up of two programs curated by the Portuguese-Spanish researcher, curator and cultural manager Leonor Lloret (Appleton Associação Cultural). The first one is a collective session and the second is dedicated to the artist Catarina Vasconcelos, in such a way that both generate a poetic and subtle revision of what binds us to others and to the world, of home and time from multiple points of view.
