Lisbon, 1913. On Sunday afternoons, there is a symphony concert. The audience leaves the theater and comes across a camera filming them. Few manage to ignore it. Showing different attitudes, some try to highlight their presence, others are more elusive.
Based on close observation of people’s reactions to the unexpected (and then rare) event of being filmed, this audiovisual essay reflects on the relationship between individuals and the movie camera, reproducing the journey of discovery and analysis of these archival images.
The film reveals unpublished moving images of Fernando Pessoa, as well as of about twenty well-known personalities of the time, including Amadeo de Sousa Cardoso, António Ferro, António Silva, Augusto Ferreira Gomes, Eduardo Viana, Ernesto Vieira, Florbela Espanca, Jorge Barradas, Stuart Carvalhais.
