The Invisible Side of Water

Directed by Ivo Reis, teacher of the BA in Cinema and Audiovisual, and Vanessa Fernandes, this short documentary portrays a territory where water, soil and human action intersect with a strong environmental footprint, although seemingly indelible. This place is Estarreja, a territory marked by social development, economic growth, and industrial activity. The film follows the water that leads us through streams and ditches, reeds, and shrubs, discovering the path of a contaminated landscape. The succession of images from the surroundings of Estarreja joins the voices of the locals who reflect a chorus of different perceptions that the directors chose to represent with one voice.
