Storyline

An old house withers away at the heart of a village ripped in half by a road where cars no longer stop. During the dictatorship, this building was the most progressive Catholic seminary in Portugal. António, the front door neighbor, was brought up and raised a family in its shadow. Ever since the Dominican priests left, he has been its most faithful caretaker - keeper of ghosts, memories, and hallways now emptied of life. Abandoned for years, the town's former epicenter now hopes for a new life. Written by Blablabla Media

Trivia

Over the course of the southern European dictatorships of the 20th century, access to education was a luxury. For a long time, Catholic seminaries, generally conservative and aligned with the regime, were the only academic path for less privileged young men. This is a story about what remains of the derelict walls of the most progressive seminary in Portugal - the country with the longest dictatorship in Europe. See more »
