Synopsis

An adaptation of the iconic short stories of Miguel Torga – the Portuguese writer was 7 times shortlisted for the Nobel Prize in Literature – “Tales from the Mountain” is an in-depth look at the life of a small rural community in 1940’s Portugal. Each chapter has its own protagonist, their existence untouched by modernity or the outside world, a microcosm of the fascist vision that Salazar had for the country: humble, locked inside itself and with an enormous endurance to suffering – and a repressed sense of violence that slowly grew in the shadows of the human spirit.
