Realizador:  David Doutel e Vasco Sá


Um inverno rigoroso congela a superfície de um rio junto à casa onde vivem dois primos. Tadeu, pastor de um boi que lhe traz sustento, e Emídio, incapaz e dependente. Envolta no vento gelado que se levanta naquele dia, a rudeza da relação entre os dois cresce, atingindo o limite. Sobre a superfície dura do rio, Tadeu é desafiado a escolher salvar o boi, ou o primo que o tolhe. No quebrar do gelo, Tadeu emerge da água com as dúvidas de quem escolheu o caminho mais difícil. Sacrificar o boi.

A harsh winter freezes the surface of a river near the house where two cousins live. Tadeu, the shepherd of an ox who brings him sustenance, and Emídio, incapable and dependent. Wrapped in the icy wind that rises that day, the roughness of the relationship between the two grows, reaching the limit. On the hard surface of the river, Thaddeus is challenged to choose to save the ox, or the cousin who hinders it.

Realizador: Vitor Hugo

Das gavetas nascem sons e imagens que oferecem uma viagem entre a memória e o devaneio, o novo e o novo velho, o figurativo e o abstracto. São flashes na retina: a barraca dos fantoches, aquele disco, o triciclo e o corredor… Tudo se combina e se metamorfoseia.

OUTRO HOMEM QUALQUER / ANY OTHER MAN

Portugal, 2012, ANIM, 12', COR

Realizador: Luis Soares

Um homem qualquer, sentado no café habitual, fuma e observa. O homem tece a sua cortina de fumo. A cidade vai e vem através da montra do café. Por momentos a película de vidro e a pele deixam de ser fronteira e a vida confunde-se. Põe-se à solta um mecanismo de associações entre o homem e a cidade, criando uma nova arquitectura de observações, memórias e desejos. Nesta teia de circuitos imponderáveis estala uma possibilidade de ruptura. Deste momento anónimo e deste homem calado restará apenas uma brevíssima marca.

A trite, discreet man goes to his usual coffee shop after work to kill time. For years on end his life has been this way – home, work, coffee shop, home. Through the coffee shop window, while smoking endless cigarettes, he watches people passing by, customers come and go. Life is nothing but a simple play of anonymous and meaningless everyday.
