The world of the Portuguese photographer, artist and poet Fernando Lemos ferociously lacks any king of external logic, used to say poet Jorge de Sena. Starting from the photograph of a girl taken by Lemos in an open fair in 1949, he returns to Portugal to meet his model nearly 60 years after. This random situation initiates another journey, that takes us back to his photographic works and into surrealism. The documentary includes testimonials of Sophia de Mello Breyner, António Pedro, Mário de Casariny and Jorge de Sena, friends, close companions and great names of Portuguese Culture. –São Paulo International Film Festival
A good portrait about a portuguese artist who became subdued by the fascist policies in the early 50's. One of the biggest faces of surrealism in Portugal who became an excellent photographer after his works in plastic arts and painting. Luís Alves de Matos provides us with a reflection about the curse of time through the eyes of a modern man who lived his life as a pure work of surreal art, not always understood.
