O laboratório (The Laboratory)
Mid-Length Movies • 38m
Incuna International Film Festival
A Tarkovskian Stalker-like atmosphere surrounds Fernando José Pereira’s O laboratório. The ruins we traverse, they are a landscape of memories. Memories of the past, above all. But they also foreshadow a future, a future of ‘life after life’, a future in which buildings made of concrete will be the only reminders of our presence. Pereira’s images, albeit seemingly empty, tell a number of stories, intimate stories which only ruins can tell. Time and duration become palpable, heavy even, and they force us to confront ourselves, to be in the moment and to reconcile ourselves with our own fleeting nature.
