The construction of the Castelo de Bode Dam began in 1945. By the new reservoir we now meet three women born in the 1940’s, who still carry out one of the most ancient human crafts – weaving.

Looms Directed by Mónica Baptista

What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Looms

    DCP. An act of documentaryism without going through the common banalities of what became the documentary rule. People and spaces are filmed with a constructive and non-illustrative look, analogies and relationships are established based on forms and editing, and no attempt is made to explain the subject. That is, it respects the intelligence of the act and the spectator, performing a rigorous plasticity.
