“The Little Cow Goes by Train”: Documenting a Triptych of sound and audio/visual installations
A “Esposa” é um filme sobre a importância ancestral do casamento e da crise que toda mulher vive no dia da cerimónia. “A Esposa” teve como base de trabalho uma pesquisa antropológica realizada entre as mulheres na aldeia rural de Sequeiros (S. Pedro do Sul, PT).

Rheia Zoontes was entirely shot in deep connection with the landscape and people of the rural village of Pendilhe (Vila Nova de Paiva, PT), a place representing to the local communities an extension of their own homes, a place to which they cannot resign and to which they are deeply attached. Here people live in simplicity and essentiality and for them happiness is the long term connection between landscape, work, family, community and memory.
G.D.Parada is a video/sound work by Duncan Whitley, developed around the amateur football club, Grupo Desportivo de Parada, in the village of Parada de Ester in rural Portugal.

Parada is produced by Binaural/Nodar and we are presently seeking to schedule screenings and exhibitions for 2013.
