O Fim do Mundo
O Fim do Mundo (The End of the World), a film directed by Basil da Cunha, seeks to give visibility to Reboleira, Amadora, and the people who live there who are in the shadow of Portugal’s history.
During the film, the neighborhood is represented in a way that tends towards realism. With the participation of actors who live in the place, the authenticity of the register presents an urban space that is usually seen as far away as possible and individual stories that are invisible.
The director explains that the film has several reading frames. The “end of adolescence” and the innocence of the main characters or the “end of Reboleira”, a space in the city that seems to have its days near the end.
