Musgo (Moss)

A little girl is drawn to the inside of a chestnut tree where she embarks on a mystical voyage through the imaginarium of Trás-os-Montes. Her curiosity guides the viewer between rituals, geographies and customs specific to each one of Trás-os-Montes’ phases of life, like the baptism in Mizarela or the disquieting rite of passage of the “caretos”. Between fantasy and ethnography, emerges an affecting portrait of a people and their land.
