Two directors embark on a journey of discovery to Macao, a multicultural labyrinth-city. The Oriental childhood memories of one–fictionalized recollections of a vivid reality–enter into dialogue with the other’s memories taken from films, book or paintings–vivid memories of a fictionalized reality.
Evocatively remixing the essay film as a thriller, Portuguese auteurs João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata honor the gambling capital of the world with this oneiric trip. Macao is expressed here as if it were inside of a hazy, unforgettable dream reckoning with the shadow of colonialism.
