* Ongoing project, video, 2019 *

A series of video and audio recordings were created over the past 10 years with the collaboration of my maternal grandmother Adelaide Costa, in the village of Ucanha, Beira Alta region in Portugal.
A.D. combines excerpts of her life, local folklore, and human and animal interactions within the landscape to create a hybrid experimental documentary film form. Recurring themes of inter European migration, rural life, feminine emancipation, and sororal bounds are explored in this piece.
