Terratreme : dix ans d'existence et cinq films à Rotterdam
Djon África by Filipa Reis and João Miller Guerra

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

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. The anniversary year kicks off with two pieces of good news: the opening of an exhibition of the company’s best film posters of the last decade in Lisbon, and the selection of five of their most recent productions at the imminent International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR, 24 January–4 February).

, a co-production with Brazil and Cape Verde, directed by duo Filipa Reis and João Miller Guerra, who also serve as co-producers through their Lisbon-based outfit Uma Pedra no Sapato. The film centres on young African Miguel Moreira, also known as Djon África, who is in search of his roots and his father. He has two identities that are simultaneously in conflict and in harmony: living in a Portuguese ghetto, he wonders what being an African actually is without really being one.

The script of Djon África was written by director Miller Guerra along with Pedro Pinho, one of Terratreme’s founders, who is also presenting his critically acclaimed feature The Nothing Factory [+lire aussi :
