When a chinese merchant brings a peculiar plastic holy figure of Our Lady to a neighborhood of Luanda, a mourning mother will seek peace, a committed barber starts a new cult and a stray kid will look for revenge for his lost friend. This bizarre urban tale will reveal a family and city facade full of resentment, greed and torment.
Nossa Senhora da Loja do Chinês means a lot to me, not only because it’s my first feature film but also defines and condenses an impulse that I have traced in my last short films: an allegory about power.
