A PROPHET IS AMONG US WATCH OUT!
HA UMA PROFETA NA OLAIAS, TENHAM CUIDADO !

Brazil, Portugal / 2021 / 8’
World Premiere

Lucas Camargo
How could we forget the razor-sharp writing
of O pequeno mal (FID 2018), directed with
Nicolas Thomé Zetune, which explored the
secret shortcomings of a relationship. The
same virtues are at play in this electrifying
film. In 1911, in Olaias, now a neighbourhood in
Lisbon, the Portuguese Republic established
itself and imposed the secularisation of the
State. Meanwhile, a woman, known by the name
of A. Brasileira, the Brazilian, works miracles
and her persecution becomes ever more
urgent. However, from one shot to the next
there is magic at work here, short-circuiting
the centuries. Playing freely with colours and
settings, Lucas Camargo de Barros offers us
a fable of repression and its potential escape
routes, in the form of a homage to silent film.
(Nicolas Feodoroff)
