(Brazil, 2008, 88 minutes)

An aging immigrant in Brazil and his wife remember for the camera the thirty years during which he lived as a Portuguese colonist in Angola, travelling across the country recording the customs of the native people. Sensitive documentary combining memoir, oral history and found footage that is moving and attentive but never seems to get quite a grip on its subject.
