HERITALES @ EarthFest (Sunday 22nd of April 2018)

Cine-Debate: ‘Bondança’

HERITALES brings to EARTHfest 2018 the documentary ‘Bondança’ (Abundance).

Directed by Manuela Barile, with research by Luis Costa and Manuela Barile and local mediation by Isabel Silvestre, ‘Bondança’ is  an almost wordless documentary about the yearly celebration of corn in a tiny rural village of the municipality of São Pedro do Sul (Viseu Dão Lafões Region), from its seeding to the making of corn bread, intertwined with many of the local female polyphonic chanting.
The presentation of the films and moderation of the debate will be in charge of Nicola Schiavottiello, with online guests Luis Costa and Manuela Barile.
