RUÍNAS traces the intrinsic life of empty abandoned buildings in various regions of Portugal, from vila do Conde via Lisbon to Porto. Dilapidated residential buildings, factories, movie theatres, churches, theatres, stores, train stations, industrial plants, and a masonry dam seem like ruins of modernity, evoking memories of a society that no longer exists, monuments of a past time. Stories associated with these structures are narrated. RUÍNAS revolves around the relationship between places and memories, spaces and narrations. What connects people to buildings? And what remains once they are abandoned and given up?
