Directors: João Rui Guerra da Mata, João Pedro Rodrigues
This wonderfully mysterious, shape-shifting feature is a detective tale that blends film noir, documentary footage and personal travelogue to intoxicating effect. With nods to Josef von Sternberg, Nicholas Ray, and the late filmmaker Chris Marker, the incongruous plot revolves around an unseen man who travels from Lisbon to one of the most multicultural and labyrinthine places in the world – Macao – a peninsula off the south coast of China. He revisits memories of the happiest time of his life. (2013; 85 min) With short: The Rich Coast by Michael Maraden 32nd Three Rivers Film Festival November 8-23, 2013
