The Big House, O Casarão | Creative feature documentary. The collective experiences of a generation of seminarists who decided to give up their “calling”. The last days of the complex that, for years, took in those same boys with the promise of a better life. From the memories of people here and there, The Big House invites the viewer to embark on a first person voyage inside a paradox: the contradiction that is finding freedom in a very unlikely place during Salazar’s dictatorship. But this documentary is also a film about friendship and growth — an x-ray of choices, fears, discoveries and affections. A contemplative and poetic cinematographic object, invitating to reflect about the process of human maturation alongside the rhythm of the country’s laicization process.
