Manuela Serra’s feature length O Movimento das Coisas (The Movement of Things, 1985) and Rose Lowder’s short film Quiproquo (1992) are crafted with an observational eye on landscapes and human interactions with them.
O Movimento das Coisas (The Movement of Things) captures the textures of everyday life in a northern village in Portugal. Three families are depicted as day passes to night, their relationship to the land captured in slow and unobtrusive detail. Made in 1985 and shown only three times until its restoration in 2021, this screening is the film’s UK premiere.
Shot in and around Bouches du Rhône, France, Quiproquo charts the harsh impact industry has on the natural world. Not to be confused with the Latin quid pro quo, Lowder’s title is a French expression meaning ‘mistake’ or ‘misunderstanding’.
A specially commissioned essay by Teresa Castro accompanies this screening.
