Red as the River

Rio Vermelho

Directed by Raquel Freire
Portugal, 1999
Short, Drama


A very pregnant girl plunges into the Douro River. Porto-bound she happily swims upstream and gives birth to a little baby girl. She nearly drowns from the unrest. Yet, she does not pass away: another pregnant girl (or is it a goddess?) seems to take over her. The goddess dances a lot!
