Portugal 2019 – Director: Inês Gil – Original language: Portuguese – Subtitles: English

The economic crisis of 2008 leaves its mark to this day – above all on Europe’s outer fringes. Calmly and sensitively the film takes us inside the microcosm of a tannery and its remaining community of workers. A study of decline.


We present the German premiere of the film at DOK.fest München 2020 @home.
