Directed by Pedro Costa
Portuguese film-maker Pedro Costa writes and directs this expressionistic docudrama chronicling the relocation of the inhabitants of a Lisbon slum to a new development on the outskirts of the city.
Retired labourer Ventura, who emigrated from Cape Verde to Portugal in the early 1970s, has over the years become a father figure of sorts to an array of displaced and disenfranchised young people in and around the slum.
The film takes the form of a sequence of vignettes chronicling the daily lives and conversations of the slum's inhabitants as they come to terms with the changes that lie ahead.
