PERFECTION

Synopsis
Ulysses, captive of Calypso on the island of Perfection, is deeply bored. His eternal dissatisfaction reflects the paradoxes of love and existence. In the dizziness of a postcolonial, fractured and seemingly meaningless world, going back to Ithaca and Penelope is his comic utopia.

PARADISE CAFE

Synopsis
1980s. Copies of a Portuguese video game pass from hand to hand. Throughout the country, these cassettes are inserted into ZX Spectrum computers. The game is loaded. On the screen, your title: Paradise Café. The development of video games in Portugal has always been troubled but there is a case that an entire generation keeps in their memory with nostalgia: Paradise Café, the pornographic game developed under unknown conditions and that spread in a viral way, before the Internet even existed. Who is Damatta, after all, who signs the game?

1936 THE YEAR OF DEATH OF RICARDO REIS

Synopsis
Fernando Pessoa, one of the greatest writers in Portuguese, created an immense parallel world and several heteronyms so as to endure the loneliness of genius. José Saramago, 1998 Nobel Laureate in Literature, has a heteronym, Ricardo Reis, return to Portugal after a 16-year exile in Brazil. 1936 is a perilous year with Mussolini’s fascism, Hitler’s Nazism, Spain’s Civil War and Salazar’s New State in Portugal. And Fernando Pessoa meets his creation, Reis. Two women, Lídia and Marcenda, are Reis’ carnal and impossible passions. “Life and Death as one” allows for literature and cinema.
