Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

In 2018, Portuguese production company Terratreme Filmes celebrates ten years of activity, a period during which a group of filmmakers and producers struggled to impose their auteur-driven vision both locally and at international festivals – and they have certainly succeeded.
