CARTAS A UMA DITADURA -
LETTERS TO A DICTATOR

by INÊS DE MEDEIROS | 2006, 60’, documentary | prod. FAUX


 

 

 

A hundred letters written by Portuguese women during the Salazar dictatorship were found by chance in a second-hand bookshop. By confronting the women who wrote these letters with the ghosts of the past, and revealing important archive material, Letters to a dictator takes us on an in-depth journey through the obscurantism that dominated Portugal for half a century.
