What is a house, after all? Does the praxis of 'inhabiting' possess a national character, is it related to questions of identity? If our dwelling is a comfort zone, is its ownership private or collective? House or home?
Masonry and emotions are the cornerstones of the misfortunes, personal accounts, and fictions brought to the screen by archive footage and the voices of participants and narrators. In this series of Portuguese documentaries, tales of dreams, landscapes, and other ways of life prevail on the audience to ponder other dimensions of architecture, such as the ideological, social, intimate, and subjective.
