Description of the content This film, playing in Lisbon, is Nobert’s Super 8 film-letter, with the help of which he try to take up contact with his distant family. This man, who has emigrated to Portugal 10 years ago, originating from the Amazonas region, Ji-Parana formulate his personal experiences of his migration and his new environment using cinematographic possibilities. Nobert has learnt the art of painting of Portuguese tiles, the azulejos with which he earns his living until today. Through Nobert’s painting, the visual world of the film base on the art and decoration tradition of azulejos painting. The visual world of the film based on Nobert’s Lisbon vision, using expressive, figurative tile-ornaments found on buildings, metro-stations, in apartments, on every corner. Though this film will be Nobert’s personal confession, which we address to his beloved, it contain important social and cultural connotations, since the regulation of immigration, and the viewer can get a deeper understanding of the motivation and thinking of the Brazilian man and other people in his position.
