MUTANTES S.21 – 25 years

After 25 years on the edition of “Mutantes S.21”, Mão Morta returned to Theatro Circo, in their native Braga, for a celebration of the iconic album in the band’s history and Portuguese music, which at the time provided the group, then only known in the most underground national medium, the recognition by a wider audience. The nine songs on the album were recorded and shot live during this concert. That record is the basis for the documentary directed by João de Sá, interspersed with recordings from the album and the band reported by his members and other participants in the album, and with documents from that time, namely recordings from the concert happened in the same place 25 years before. The result is an unprecedented and assertive portrait of a time and a band – and a music album – that are part of the history of Portuguese music. Trailer here.
