A Monte - short-film

Summer. Five friends go on a road trip through the coast of Alentejo. Rita decides to meet with someone from her past. There begins a path that can bring her some answers.

Summer. Five friends go on a road trip through the coast of Alentejo. Rita decides to meet with someone from her past. There begins a path that can bring her some answers.

Family - what is it and where do we find it? In fact, more than family, where do we feel at home? Which are the houses that bring us memories and what kind of houses are we looking for even if temporary or insecure?

Summer. Rita travels with her group of friends to a familiar place. Together they enjoy the beach, the friendship and the sea. They are on holidays and apparently there is nothing but this foolish, carefree happiness of summer living, almost returning to what it used to be when they were children. And in the midst of this apathy, there’s a trigger to the reality and the essence of who she is and what she seeks. It’s in the absence of our daily rhythm and habits that we suddenly realize the weight of things and what we can’t forget.

A MONTE is an independent short-film produced by a group of young creators, artists and early-stage technicians in the fields of film, theatre, fine arts and music. At this pre-production stage we seek your help to complete the funding and start shooting on October 2019.  

We are so close to the shooting and your help is essencial!
