Nata of this life

Nata of this Life appears from the hunger of learning how to work in the stop motion universe with the (hunger) of representing something so traditional and portuguese such the typical Pastel de Nata.
We present, to the audience, a short film that demonstrates all the steps of the Pastel de Natas recipe metaphorizing the ingredients into portuguese traditional elements.
Tasty examples such as a cinnamon stick for a portuguese guitar or a fine lemon zest that is assumed as a "Heart of Viana" in filigree.

Director Biography - Cláudia Sofia Gomes, Ricardo Miguel Soares

Cláudia Gomes, born in 1995, is an Actress and Puppeteer from Porto, Portugal.
She is currently developing her most recent research project of a human-sized puppet manipulated by strings and works as a producer at Agente A Norte.
This work in progress already counts with two presentation moments:
One, titled ca·ó·ti·co, at Teatro Municipal do Porto - Rivoli, as a result of the Post-graduate course in Contemporary Dance she concluded in 2018 at Escola Superior de Música e Artes do Espetáculo (ESMAE).
And the other, titled dis-cên-ci-a, at FIMP - Festival Internacional de Marionetas do Porto, 2018.
As a professional actress and puppeteer, Cláudia regularly collaborated with a couple of theatre companies, such as, Confederação and Historioscopio. While still managing to invest her time and interest in other productions, carrying out different roles ranging from producer to dancer.

Ricardo Soares, born on January 6, 1993, began in the world of 'Theatre' when he entered the Jobra Conservatory of Music, where he completed the Professional Course in Performing Arts. He moved from there to the Superior School of Music and Performing Arts, in Porto, in 2011, and, continuing this unreasonable academic trajectory, in 2014 he entered the Masters in Film Project Development, at the Superior School of Theater and Cinema, in Lisbon . He is a simple man, with mild manners, who drinks Coca-Cola.
