Reverse, charming game blurs the borders between a wayward film recording and life around it, one late-summer month during the pandemic.

Together with the French documentary filmmaker Maureen Fazendeiro, Miguel Gomes (Arabian Nights), GFF 2016) takes us to a sun-drenched Sintra, sensually captured in all its vibrations with a 16-mm camera. At a farm with a spacious dwelling, Crista, Caroloto, and João hang out among barking dogs, meowing cats, and chirping crickets. Dances, flirts, building a greenhouse for butterflies, picking fruit, driving tractors. The days run together without aim, while our perception of whether this is a fictive story, a documentary, or a fictive story about a documentary in progress, becomes increasingly hazy. The Tsugua Diaries is a tender homage to the imagination and to the art of film. A puzzle film, with its creative origin in the limitations of the lockdown.
