Diários De Otsoga

Portugal, 2021, 102 '

The crew of a film decides day by day what to shoot, giving life to a work in which it is never too clear what happens in reality or in the fiction of the staging. A magical and dreamy film, capable of affirming the need for an even freer and more personal cinema.

With the support of the Instituto Camões I.P. - Embassy of Portugal

The event is finished.
