Editing and post-production of the documentary "Citizen Jones" about actor, director and writer Terry Jones, member of the Monty Python group during his stay in Lisbon in 2007.

In December 2007, Terry Jones was in Lisbon at the São Luiz Municipal Theater to stage his show "Evil Machines", with music by Luís Tinoco, musical direction by Cesário Costa, costumes by Vin Burnham.
Frederico Corado followed the rehearsals with his camera, during which time he had the opportunity to talk for some time with Terry Jones, asking him the possibility of making a documentary about the construction of the show and about Terry Jones himself.
A long interview was recorded but the film was never completed due to lack of funding.
Today, 10 years later, we try to finish the film that tells in his own words the history of the career of Terry Jones.
A long the documentary we talk about Monty Python, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, the Surrealists, the Marx Brothers, Rupert the Bear, Spike Milligan, Lewis Carroll and so much more.
