Rio Corgo, by Sérgio da Costa and Maya Kosa
(95′) / 2015

Silva, an old tramp, with his bag over his shoulder, arrives in an isolated Portuguese village and moves into an abandoned house. He meets Ana, with whom he establishes a relationship of friendship and initiation. Fascinated by this man with his Romanesque life history, the youngster slides progressively towards his imaginary universe, peopled by supernatural beings among which the main figure is the loved and deceased Carolina. But Silva suffers strange crises that inevitably lead him to hospital, where a dozen benevolent women enter him. Will they be able to save him?

At the end of the session there is a conversation with the director, the curator Miguel Valverde and the italian film critic Paolo Moretti.

Maximum 2 tickets per person.
