Age Restriction



An extremely specific work in Portuguese cinematography: science fiction inserted in militant cinema, shot in full PREC. The Confederation imagines a Portugal divided between two clearly defined social, political and philosophical states: North and South. The tension and monitoring between these two spheres is constant, but it does not prevent Maria, a technician from the Anti-seismic Brigades, and António, Second Lieutenant from the Militias, from finding a way to indulge in a forbidden relationship. With a soundtrack by José Mário Branco, Sérgio Godinho and Fausto.

Inserted in the Festas de Abril 2023 (Festivities of April 2023).
