Nada para ver aqui

Nothing to See Here
Like a stroke of white paint, the aeroplane’s condensation trail moves across the blue canvas of the sky. The voice on the radio is talking about an upcoming lunar eclipse – of which nothing will be seen here, on the outskirts of a city in Portugal. Instead, with touches of humour and magical realism, director Nicolas Bouchez observes the everyday happenings and colourful facets of a city where there is ostensibly nothing to see.
