Lisbon in the Backmirror

tba • Documentary

Documentary by Marcelo Gomes

Portugal; Brazil

A fado singer, a soccer player, a vacuum cleaner sales woman, a poet. All these people have something in common: they are taxi drivers working in a city that struggles to keep its soul in the wake of massive tourism. Lisbon in the Backmirror follows the poetics of everyday life in a neoliberal world in which subjectivity has been annihilated by pragmatism.
