    By the way, that wasn’t the first time we worked with him: as a screenwriter and director, every single time we needed him, he was the same precise professional. Julio exceeds in what he does!”

Labour, Time and Space – Professions under risk of extinction

The series “Labor, Time and Space” portrays five professions under risk of extinction in modern times. The stream in narrative sustains two constant elements: the intention of filming the techniques inherent to each profession, in a way of registering these techniques to future generations, as well as the subtle critique on the acceleration of modern life, a feature that contrasts the natural slow pace of the portrayed professions.

Format: 3 films, DVD, total running time: 67 minutes, Portuguese and English

Curiously, both specialists have young apprentices learning their crafts, an aspect that brings hope into the chances of the survival of their professions faced with the challenges of modernity.
