Private Project

Toninho, Armanda's Ringo

A stranger in a time where the photographed image of others prevails, Ringo, the aged kid of his mother Armanda, meanders unphotographable on the streets and roads of Melgaço. Invariably, he collides with unresolved crossroads: where the past, the present, and the foreknowledge of an empty future jostle one another. Crossroads where Ringo’s star shines in one moment and fades on the next one. Where night appears and the dawn is forgotten.
