Portugal / 2021 / 26'
Natália is a 75 year old Portuguese craftswoman, who struggles to maintain the art of the bulrush mats. Ever since her early days, in a time and place that knew no abundance, the bulrush was a central piece of a simple way of living. Her life and her craft intertwine and blend in a magic realism documentary.
