Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
In 2012, Portugal is deep in economic crisis. On September 15, half a million citizens rallied against the punishing austerity measures imposed by the government, the largest protest in 50 years. With high unemployment and weak job growth, people were losing hope. Not only in Portugal but in many other European countries as well. It was during this time that the idea for SALTO came to me, from a seemingly mundane episode. Inside a supermarket, I saw a young boy looking for his mother, who worked there but apparently skipped work on that day. Confused, the boy wandered aimlessly and eventually left, all by himself. What happened to his mother? Where did he go after that? The event sparked memories of my own childhood and I was fascinated mostly by what I didn’t know. For me, a film always begins with something from life itself. In SALTO, I was interested in examining a day in the life of a young boy as he drifts through a city overwhelmed by the recession, reimagining not only a temporal and geographic space but also an emotional universe.
