Showtimes

Made for the city of Guimarães’ European cultural celebrations, João Pedro Rodrigues’ film asks questions (off-screen) of 24 Galician men in various states of undress (and in front of a green-screen), testing their knowledge of Portuguese history—in particular, their thoughts on the first (self-proclaimed) king of Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques. The answers might surprise you, but in this variation on a casting session for a superhero film, their bodies do much of the talking.
