This film is an independent project that started from a challenge of the Swiss architect Valerio Olgiati. The invitation came a few days before the beginning of the construction, and the lack of time and the constraint of means gave rise to an unusual team – 4 filmmakers – and to a peculiar process made only in two steps: filming and editing. The filming consisted of periodic visits to the construction site, according to the development of the works, and a trip to Switzerland, in order to record the context of its author, which is, of course, very different from the rural Alentejo. The montage started only after most of the shooting was done and was extended for about two years.
a film by Ana Resende, Miguel C. Tavares, Rui Manuel Vieira, Tiago Costa
