Bruno Lourenço
In the Montesinho natural reserve, in the north of Portugal, the extravagant reappearance of a bear triggers a series of reactions and diverging interests. A beekeeper claims to have seen the beast destroying his bee-hives but having been unable to film it because of his low phone battery. A young forest guard proudly claims that having seen bears on TV, she would doubtless be able to recognize one in real life. Under the cover of a hilarious criss-crossing of roleplays and red herrings, of tales told by unreliable narrators, Bruno Lourenço delivers with Oso a chronicle of youth, depicting interactions between generations and drawing the portrait of a rural community.
