Portugal – um dia de cada vez

João Canijo

2016 Portugal DOC 155 '

A journey that begins in the far north of Portugal and, on lands of Tras-os-Montes and Alto Douro, visits a dozen villages and places. The houses, cafes, streets, and the people who still live there. It is the portrait of the daily lives of some of these people, less and less, more and more elderly. And alone. People who take their lifes, one day at a time.
