IMPERIAL GIRL (2010)
HD video, 16:9, color, mono sound, 11 min., Portugal

A direct cinema “fashion” documentary set around D. Ilda’s lunch time on a rainy Sunday.
It is Sunday. It is raining. The outsiders of Lisbon stay indoors talking randomly. These are the permanent guests of the Imperial hostel.
Starting as a fiction with a solid framing suddenly this piece switches to a harsh direct documentary fashion while capturing the details.
The camera goes crazy and the events drive us into a final “twist” were the spectator becomes aware of the camera as the main character.
Imperial Girl is a film about one of the many Lisbon faces.
