    The Sound of the Shaking Earth O som da terra a tremer

    Rita Azevedo Gomes

    Portugal, 1990 | 94 min | Fic
    Alberto, a writer paralysed by indecision, constantly abandons his works. He feigns a journey, relocating within his house to spy on friends' reactions. His own tale merges with a sailor's adventures in a foreign port, blurring reality and fiction. Ultimately, he's consumed by his narrative, becoming a universal outcast. In a way, this is a story about impossible returns.

    * presented by Celia Barrionuevo and Rita Azevedo Gomes
