GENESIS 22

Synopsis
Abraham receives a call. The Wheel of Fortune, the highest arcane number 10 of the tarot, appears on his phone screen. A voice is heard, it’s God. To test Abraham's faith, God commands him to do a terrible task: to sacrifice his son Isaac for a burnt offering (as a fire) as proof of his boundless submission to his purposes.

Synopsis
In the early 70’s, Camilo de Sousa left Mozambique, to travel around Europe, then joining the Frelimo guerilla. First in their training camp of Nachingwea, then in the front line of the national liberation war. Today, living in Portugal, he returns once again to Mozambique to meet two brothers in arms, who he met in the times of the guerilla and with whom he shared the Frelimo leadership in the province of Cabo Delgado.With Aleixo Caindi and Julião Papalo, Camilo recalls the dreams and hopes of those days, before the joy of independence was shattered by the ceaseless chase for the “New Man”.

SURDINE

Synopsis
In a rural setting, an old man is told his dead wife was seen at the market. Spiteful and sad, he chooses to hide away from the rest of the world. However, his friends insist that he shouldn't listen to hearsay. They say he should try to recover and, who knows, even remarry. It's a story about the delicateness of old age, of what is still left to dream and love when you reach this life stage and the body weakens. It takes place in an ancient and hidden Portugal, that still exists in spite of our efforts of modernization.

RUBY

Synopsis
The chorus of dawn descends the burned mountain, echoing in the shale walls of a Portuguese village. Ruby awakens and stands in the half light. Outside, her dog Frankie has run away. Daughter of two worlds, the one that the English parents left behind and the Portuguese land of her upbringing that still calls her a foreigner, Ruby moves between the borders of both, without belonging to either. Her best friend, Millie, will be returning to England; the end of their childhood meets the end of a warm summer day.
