Filmmaker Paula Gaitán was married to Glauber Rocha (1938-1981), a key figure in the Brazilian Cinema Novo movement of the Sixties, which embodied politically engaged filmmaking that resisted colonialism in Latin America. In Diário de Sintra, Gaitán creates a deeply moving meditation on memory and time as she chronicles her return from Brazil to Sintra, Portugal, where she lived in exile with her husband and their children before his untimely death. In the form of an experimental narrative, she deftly interweaves Super-8-home-movie footage and photographs taken of Rocha in 1981 with beautifully composed, evocative contemporary images of the Portuguese landscape. (Jon Gartenberg)
«The film is not meant to be realistic - it is about memories and the ways in which they can build reality.» (Paula Gaitán)

This film is screened together with p.s. beirut, chapter one.
