While the young captains lead the revolution in the streets, the people of Fontainhas search for Ventura, lost in the woods. Pardo per la migliore regia at the Locarno Film Festival in 2014, Pedro Costa’s film is a landmark in his series of works dedicated to the inhabitants of the neighbourhood on the outskirts of Lisbon, between the shades of history and the ascetic beauty of the lives that have shaped it. A vital point of introduction for the subsequent Vitalina Varela (2019), Pardo d’oro at Locarno in 2019.

Pedro Costa’s films explore colonial history and reflect on its relationship with our modern world. He has developed his own pure, original narrative style and has remained constant to it, creating films of profound sincerity.
