Private Project

Caixa Aberta

A director and an actress embark on a trip to create a movie. Always followed by a vibrant team they hitchhike along with friends and strangers, through the north of Portugal. The
itinerary is a set of locations as random as the film is desired to be. In the beginning, there isn’t a movie yet. The idea develops as expectations change and dialogues are built, naturally, in each location.
