Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
In its essence, “SUBMISSÃO” is a film about relationships and life choices regarding marriage and emotional attachments. During my research for the script, I had the pleasure of having professional collaborators stating that most domestic violence issues are a consequence and not a cause. The real cause is our actual inability, as human beings, to foresee if the person we choose to be with will turn out to be of a great experience or the worst. So I chose to venture into that field of questioning and ultimately explore what unfortunately is now a reality, at least in the portuguese society: the patriarchic culture influences legal decisions. Rape and prostitution in marriage is still an issue in most of the patriarchic societies where both men and women are victims in different manners. I believe this film brings forth a set of questions which need to be reflected upon, if not by the government and the whole society, at least by the spectators. It begins by showing the woman’s perspective, the rape victim, the wife, the protagonist. Most people who saw the film have no way of knowing what and who is right or wrong by the end. And that, to me, is the definition of responsibility in terms of scriptwriting and filmmaking. We, storytellers, are not supposed to answer these questions. We’re supposed to present them and recall they still exist in a world where feminism is finally threading the political world.
