Between March and May, whilst Portugal went through the confinement, director Filipe Correia Santos created “L’axiome”, an exercise of style, written, filmed and directed by him, returning to his origins.
During an unprecedented period in our history, the image of an empty city divides us between contemplating a unique beauty and the fear of an uncertain future. It creates a parallel with another unique event in Lisbon, the 1755 earthquake. It is illustrated through the powerful voice of José Albuquerque, to the “Poème sur le désastre de Lisbonne” by Voltaire.
This short film features the actor Ricardo Paz and Gil Amado in sound recording and sound design.
