Fourtyeight years of Salazar’s dictatorship in Portugal and its colonies. Accompanying the images of anthropometric photographs, voices of the regime’s much-feared PIDE (political police) and its opponents remember. There is not only the secret history of these photos, but also the confrontation between the executioner and his victim, frozen for eternity. The years move on but the photos remain the same, all on the same format: black and white, fullface and profile. Behind these monochromatic, monotonous images, sad and inert, the voices of those formerly photographed by the PIDE recall their memories, their fears, their scars, their arrests, the physical abuse, the torture, the humiliations and the prison.
