Alentejo Late Afternoon. A cinematic canvas landscape

Alentejo Late Afternoon is an aesthetic essay on the earliest sources of the art of cinema: light, movement, sound and pretense. 

Using Alentejo’s landscape as the canvas and the camera as an instrument for the expression of an original look, a cinematographic structure is created around references to the history of cinema, a revisiting of forms, styles and models that made the cinema and its more direct antecedents: photography, painting, music, theater.
