Where Is This Street? or With No Before And After

From our window one can see a set of the film “The Green Years”, directed by Paulo Rocha in 1963. This was our starting point: guided by Rocha’s gaze, we look back at the places of that film. The successive geological, urbanistic and social strata of Lisbon, besieged by the pandemic that interrupte the shooting, are drawn out in front of our camera, like a contemporary jazz improvisation from a score written in 1963.
