International Perspective

The Domain

A Herdade

Portugal, France 2019 Fiction cor 166 min.

The chronicle of a family that owns one of the largest estates in Europe, on the south bank of the River Tagus. The Domain delves deeply into the secrets of their homestead, portraying the historical, political, economic and social life of Portugal, since the 1940s, through the Carnation Revolution to these days. The Domain is kind of a huge isle inside a country dominated by a fascist dictatorship. It’s like a kingdom dominated by a progressive and a charismatic anarchist prince, but he will inevitably collide with the people’s will to change.

Presented at Venice International Film Festival.
