PORTUGAL | 177 minutes | 2017

A polemical musical about the working world and unfettered capitalism — neo-realism, updated. Portuguese documentary filmmaker Pedro Pinho made waves with this film, his first fiction, the most interesting entry at this year’s Directors’ Fortnight. For nearly three hours, we follow the employees of a factory, like so many others, slated for relocation. The cast of non-professional actors share their thoughts and feelings — and sing!
