Leonor Noivo

Fiction / 35mm / 35' / 2016

Nights and days roll in like a braking train. Mother and son return to their country, their city, their past, after years spent abroad. They take diverging paths to reclaim what has been lost; the son in search of an absent father, the mother seeking the possibility of love. From this confrontation a new gesture is born — the beginning of a metamorphosis, a reencounter in a time and space that is theirs only.
