Air Conditioner

Director Fradique on Air Conditioner, our closing night film for the fifth edition of FRAMES of REPRESENTATION 2020:

‘A reminder that our city is made up of people, memories and not empty, glazed skyscrapers, inspired by soap operas or American films. This movie is about buildings and all the ‘transparent people’ who work and build their lives in every day. I grew up and lived in different ancient buildings in central Luanda. Matacedo is a character that embodies and reflects the state of inertia and, at the same time, of hope, pertaining to the vertical dystopias in which we live. In these buildings, each person dreams of the house they want and scramble for the memories they don’t have. In these buildings, the elevators are made of bricks and trees grow out of the walls - our neorealism is pure magic. My desire is that the film may now join the fallen air conditioners and be part of the living memory of this city.’

Air Conditioner is available to stream for seven days from 13 December, 6pm GMT.
