Gôa: Pátria Incerta

Once Upon a Time in Goa

Inês Gonçalves & Vasco Pimentel

This film is the second in a series of films discussing the impact of Portugal's long and controversial presence in the world.
People who over generations have been influenced, converted, submitted, displaced, and assimilated by the Portuguese, how do they live, think, remember, dream and resist today?
This film goes to Goa (India) where the assimilation of the Portuguese way of life survives through a fervently Catholic and romantically anachronistic style, while still based on the ancient Brahmanic traditions. A bewildering game of mirrors.
