IF THE SEA ALLOWS

Synopsis
This documentary is the result of 15 years of filming by the late Pedro Aguilar. During this period he established a friendship of growing complicity with fisherman António Escaleira. In a somewhat solitary process and with great passion and commitment he documented the fishing arts, the mastering of the tides, the craftsmanship and the everyday life of this man from Azenhas do Mar. An urban gaze over a man of a seafaring town, tells us a story of above all else an improbable friendship.

THE METAMORPHOSIS OF BIRDS

Synopsis
"Beatriz married Henrique on the day of her 21st birthday. Henrique, a naval officer, would spend long periods at sea. Ashore, Beatriz, who learned everything from the verticality of plants, took great care of the roots of their six children. The oldest son, Jacinto (Hyacinth), my father, dreamed he could be a bird. One day, suddenly, Beatriz died. My mom didn’t die suddenly, but she died when I was 17. On that day, me and my father met in the loss of our mothers and our relationship was no longer just that of father and daughter." — Catarina Vasconcelos
