Part of the Berwick New Cinema: Balearic Abyssal screening

'Angélica needs to change her lock.' Offering shelter from the storm, this is a film for precarious times. Gustavo Vinagre Alves' films succeed where many fail, allowing the full complexity of politics, art and artifice to synthesise and synergise through deceptively straightforward narrative and documentary forms. Flying in the face of tragedy and hypocrisy, Filme-catástrofe is erotically charged and full of love.
