Our Land, Our Altar / A Nossa Terra, o Nosso Altar
  • Year2020
  • Duration77 min

Aleixo, a neighbourhood in Porto, is inhabited by low income communities and workers, and is known as a drug centre. Sitting in one of the most beautiful hills overlooking the river, the neighbourhood became a target of both political and economical powers, and its demolition became unavoidable.
This film portrays a community on the verge of being dispersed, ripped from their houses and sense of belonging. It mourns a way of life, and class identity, while depicting the inhabitants’ dignity and force to carry on.
