CGiii Comment

Bloody brilliant...but, you need to concentrate.

And...some of the imagery is - literally - breathtaking.

No trailer...


The(ir) Blurb...

Mónica é, em potência, qualquer coisa. Por isso, os seus retratos nascem do justapor de sons e de imagens retiradas do 'arquivo' audiovisual que é o YouTube. Negligenciam-se direitos de autor, usurpam-se os propósitos daqueles que são negligenciados e ensaiam-se verdades (im)possíveis. Assim, 'O Retrato de Mónica' não se quer um documento inflexível – que informa e certifica –, mas antes uma montagem audiovisual capaz de sugerir a inevitável identidade múltipla das coisas: do som, da imagem e do homem.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
