Distopia (2021)

Sobre o filme

The film documents the urban transformations that have been mutilating the city of Porto since 2007: in Bacelo, the gypsy camp is replaced by a hostel and a marina, both luxury; in Aleixo, the towers intended for affordable housing are demolished on the pretext of sanitizing a bastion of drug trafficking and the devastated neighbourhood is now ready to host pharaonic architectural projects; in Fontainhas, the Vandoma Fair installed there for decades and frequented by vendors and buyers of low economic power, is driven out to the periphery. The expulsion of the poor and the outcasts opens the way to rampant real estate speculation, intensive touristification, the death of traditional commerce, the triumph of façade and the culture of the event.
