NEOREALITE par Steve Barakatt.
Dans une zone de guerre ravagée, une jeune femme, ELLE, danse et s’amuse avec son compagnon, LUI. Leur bonheur, vécu et consumé dans l’imaginaire, est protégé de la brutalité du monde réel. Cet état candide et paisible tourne vite au cauchemar lorsque LUI est kidnappé par une force extérieure qui l’extirpe hors de l’imaginaire d’ELLE.
Entre la lutte et la fuite, ELLE devient le témoin principal des horreurs auxquelles s’adonnent les Hommes, et constate que la seule réalité qui vaille, et la seule qui possède encore une once de beauté et d’humanité… est celle de son imaginaire.
Music short film by Francis Bordeleau
One night, Andie, figurehead of a four friends group, plans out her death in front of all her relatives. Through a broken monologue, Andie reveals her deep thoughts about each person she has harmed. This staging destabilizes the group and questions the links previously made. While each member of the gang tries to regain control of the group, both emotionally and physically, a fifth person interferes from the outside and comes to stir up chaos.
João Nicolau de Almeida is recognized as a true pioneer in the Douro Valley. Thanks to his studies in oenology, his love of the terroir and his passion for his wine, he directed the research that helped to anchor the five main grape varieties of the Douro region in culture; Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao.
After more than 40 years at the helm of Ramos Pinto, João Nicolau de Almeida has passed the torch after his last harvest for the house in 2015. He is now continuing his study of the lands that enchant him, those of the Douro. Letting himself be guided by his thirst for learning more and more about nature, he works on a new wine melody with his children.
