Blue Breath

A Feature film by Rodrigo Areias

Production year : 2018

    Synopsis

    Blue Breath is a documentary film impregnated with fiction. Part of the documental book adaptation about the life of the Portuguese fishermen covering all the coastline from North to South, finding parallelism between the actuality and the life written by Raúl Brandão 100 years ago. The objective is to bring real life and real characters to the film, building
    from the book structure and trying to fictional parts of the book that find common ground with the life our characters live today. It will be a film with two layers, the first about the life and stories of modern day fishermen, seen at the light of another, the stories written in “The Fishermen”, which will be interpreted by our real characters according to their life stories.
    This way we intend to emphasize the non evolution of life of this so important Portuguese community against all the evolution that surrounds us. It intends to be a poetic film that reflects the beauty of Raul Brandão’s
    words in images and sounds. But above all a film about the people.
