O Fim do Mundo

Switzerland  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  107'  ·  o.v. Cape Verdean Creole/Portuguese

Spira comes home from a juvenile detention center and reconnects with his loved ones in Reboleira (Lisbon), a slum on the verge of being destroyed. Kikas makes it clear that he’s not welcome.


In an area facing demolition, Da Cunha casts locals in his film. He glorifies them in their complex humanity, capturing their beauty despite the perverse logic that drives them. By recording their gaze, he gives them a voice. With no hope on the horizon, Spira tries to see beyond it. He moves through the neighborhood like an angel − a dark angel. Staying close to bodies and the glimmer of the night, the film adopts the melancholy pace of the ancient tragedies.
