Se Eu Fosse Ladrão... Roubava  (If I Were a Thief... I’d Steal)

Portugal  ·  2012  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  87'  ·  o.v. Portuguese

1920s. Vitalino, a small farmer from São Vicente sees his father die of the epidemic which decimated the country. Some years later, of all the brothers, Vitalino is the strongest and takes his father’s place in the house. But the village is too small for his aspirations and he decides to head to Brazil, leaving his sisters in charge of the household. In parallel with Vitalino’s story, If I Were a Thief… I’d Steal portrays the world of Paulo Rocha rummaging through his films and ghosts over the years.

Other films by Paulo Rocha will be screened in the section Histoire(s) du cinéma.
