Alentejo, AlentejoTreblinka The City of the Dead Journey to PortugalSérgio Tréfaut FAUX




Alentejo, South of Portugal. Dozens of amateur a capella polyphonic choirs gather regularly to sing old polyphonic songs and new lyrics about present times. This is «cante». Born in the taverns and in the fields, sung by miners and peasants, «cante» was transmitted from generation to generation.
This film is a journey into present Portugal, discovering «cante» music, and the life of the performers who seem to express the deep voice of the Earth.
