Plot
“There is not only the secret history of these photos, but also the confrontation between the executioner and his victim, frozen for eternity. The years move on but the photos remain the same, all on the same format: black and white, fullface and profile. Behind these monochromatic, monotonous images, sad and inert, the voices of those formerly photographed by the Pide (political police) recall their memories, their fears, their scars, their arrests, the physical abuse, the torture, humiliations and prison.” Yann Lardeau What can a portrait photograph reveal about a political system? What can a picture taken 35 years ago tell us about our contemporary society? Based on photographs taken on the arrest of political prisoners during the Portuguese dictatorship (1926-1974), this documentary aims to convey the mechanisms by which a dictatorial regime sought to sustain its existence throughout 48 years.
