The Tsugua Diaries
(Diários de Otsoga)

  •   Maureen Fazendeiro, Miguel Gomes
  •   Portugal

Told from end to beginning, The Tsugua Diaries begins with Crista, Carloto and João dancing ecstatically in a living room, seemingly celebrating the end of something. In the next sequence, the three characters, exhausted after a long day’s work, yearn to let loose. “We could use some dancing,” Crista suggests. Continuing a career-long fascination with the act of filmmaking, director Miguel Gomes (Tabu, Arabian Nights) teams with his wife and creative partner Maureen Fazendeiro for a sun-soaked metatextual celebration of the creative process and a hazy meditation on the lockdown blues. Shot in sumptuous 16mm during the pandemic, the film is a playful narrative puzzle as fiction, reality, cinema, and life merge into one.
