Synopsis

School is over and there’s a bustle in the air. In Porto, tourists fill up the streets and cafes. The old and decadent are now highlights of the city’s gentrification. Vicente moves around town on his bike, watching the urban landscape modify day by day. The town is no longer the same, the world is changing and so is he. Among his family and friends, Vicente lives with anticipation the first days of summer and the beginning of a new life.

Director’s Statement

For me cinema must always be personal and intimate. Through the act of filming others we speak about ourselves. This is a film about the now: Porto, 2018. The ongoing nature of the gentrification process makes it a never ending story. More than a political film, it is an emotional one. Through Vicente’s eyes, we witness a family portrait that speaks of many others.
