Coming soon to the Vancouver International Film Festival, between September 27 and October 12, an exceptionally beautiful film featuring a young man Miguel Moreira from Portugal who is searching for his father who had been deported to Cape Verde. The film shows the beauty of Cape Verde’s landscapes elegantly and captured the lovely landscapes of the island. The contrast of Miguel’s life in Portugal where he lived with the misconceptions and stereotyping of an African living in Portugal.
His adventures in Cape Verde changed him and added warmth and humor to the film.
