Talking About Rio de Onor + short
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Talking About Rio de Onor (Falamos de Rio de Onor), dir. António Campos, Portugal 1974, 63 min., Portuguese with English subtitles


Talking About Rio de Onor is a chronicle about a remote border village in the northeastern region of Trás-os-Montes in Portugal, a country on the verge of revolution. The film focuses on agro-pastoral communitarianism's remaining traits that characterise the village's labour relations and the changes brought about by emigration and modernisation. Campos said: "... when certain situations no longer exist or are about to disappear, there's no need to dig up a painful past. Rather, we must create a solid present to articulate the future".

The screening opens with a short montage of images taken from details of Marc Chagall's paintings, one of a series of films Campos made in the 1960s about art and exhibitions.

Chagall - Shortly the Moon, the Full Moon, Will Show Up (Chagall – Breve a Lua, Lua Cheia, Vai Aparecer), dir. António Campos, Portugal 1966, 10 min., Portuguese with English subtitles
