Palácios de Pena: By Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt: 2011: 59 Min

Haunted by their own directionless lives, two pre-adolescent girls reunite while visiting their ailing grandmother. In the midst of her fantasies of a medieval past – one consumed by fear and desire – the two girls are transformed and confront a legacy of oppression. Palácios de pena is about a culturally inherited fear in Portugal, linked to political and social oppression during the Inquisition and Fascism. (Gabriel Abrantes, Daniel Schmidt)
