The death of a city – filme

Synopsis: In the heart of Bairro Alto, right in the center of Lisbon, the building of an old typography shop is demolished to make way for luxury apartments. Seeing this as a perfect image of the death of a certain Lisbon in the aftermath of the financial crisis and the exponential real estate and tourism growth that followed, the director films an urban diary that depicts the daily life of the construction site and those who work there. What starts out as a work-centric film turns out to be the story of the director’s relationship with his hometown and the people who built it. Trailer:
