Nogueira, a man in his fifties, is a relic of times long past. While the youngsters at the school where he works as a caretaker still think the world is their oyster, Nogueira knows that, for him, most doors have long closed. In his first feature film, made for Portuguese television, Manuel Mozos sends his lonesome hero on a night-time quest. UM PASSO, OUTRO PASSO E DEPOIS… is remindful of Italian neorealism when it accompanies its protagonist on his odyssey as he fights the adversities of life. Manuel Mozos’ feature debut is also an emphatic, almost melancholic film that firmly sides with the outsider. In the end, Nogueira’s efforts are rewarded and he gets the bit of luck he deserves.

In the presence of Manuel Mozos and Miguel Gomes (curator).
