Campo, dir. Tiago Hespanha, Portugal 2019, 100 min., Portuguese with English subtitles
In Roman times, the Campo de Marte was a training arena for war. In this reflective documentary, director Tiago Hespanha depicts a modern-day Campo – The Field Firing Range of Alcochete on the outskirts of Lisbon. The film contrasts the mundane and the transcendental – military troops training for fictional missions, astronomy aficionados observing the stars – as it portrays Europe’s largest military base.
