documentary | 92' | 2018
director | Stefan Lechner


Abandoning a life of petty crime, David strives to fulfil his life-long ambition to become a professional singer of Fado, Portugal's unique popular folksong. Together with his best friend Adriano, he starts performing on Lisbon's Fado Vadio circuit in order to perfect his craft. Adriano's strong voice swiftly brings him attention and paid gigs, whilst David struggles. So, David decides to enter the annual Fado Competition and to sing one of his own poems in order to get exposure.

VADIO is a human portrait of redemption, perhaps unattainable through music but possible with poetry. Unfortunately, David doesn't want to be a poet. It is a love story for a bygone Lisbon and Fado, where people still find catharsis singing songs about their sorrows.

The House               
documentary | 80' | 2017
director | Rui Simões


Born in Lisbon during the Fascist Regime in order to control students coming from the portuguese overseas colonies, the Casa Estudantes do Império, with delegations in Coimbra and Porto, was fundamental to the independence movements in the colonies. Through that meeting point passed future anti-colonial and national movement leaders such as Agostinho Neto and Amílcar Cabral. The House recovers memories and testimonies by some of its remaining survivors while also adapting to screen excerpts of Pepetela's novel "A Geração da Utopia".
