World Caminhos (2018)

In the 24th Caminhos do Cinema Português edition, the schedule of World Caminhossection intends to present to the spectators, through movies originates from the distinct continents, the idea of a world that is very critic about itself and increasingly more open to diversity, with characters in a constant self-discovery process.

Between reputed and anonymous artists, revolutions or tributes to those of former times, this selection shows that cinema continues to be a powerful mean of diffusion and debate of ideas. While dystopias hyperbolize a determined negative aspect present in society, becoming, therefore, an even more powerful political message, there are movies which do not need to go far from our reality, occasionally fictionalized, to pass along their message. In this movies collection there is even space to reflect about the human relation with the unknown and supernatural, in stories that acquire a fairly strong alegoric spin.

After deliberation over many hours of film, the main goal was to find feature films that could dialog, at the format or theme levels, with this dialogue and differentiated aesthetic on the short film format. In the described path, the movies intertwined, touched and defied themselves in a set that was either uniform in the format and varied in the themes or similar in content but distinct in their formal outlines.

World Caminhos is a section who aims to overcomethe politically correct barriers and explore the characters’ sexuality, along with love demonstrations that do not see borders nor restrict themselves to labels.
