Catarina Vasconcelos’s grandmother, Beatriz, married Henrique on her 21st birthday; he was a naval officer who spent long periods at sea. Beatriz, who learned everything from how plants grow vertically, tended the roots of their six children. The oldest son, Jacinto (Hyacinth), Catarina’s father, dreamed he could be a bird. One day, suddenly, Beatriz died. Catarina’s mother also died, not suddenly, but when her daughter was 17. On that day, Catarina and Jacinto’s mutual loss shifted their relationship beyond that of simply father and daughter. This dream-like documentary, full of stunning imagery and shot on 16mm film, reconfigures their intertwined stories.
