Trails (1978)
A poetic journey in the heart of Portugal. They were two. A man and a woman that met and traveled down from the Tras-os-Montes to the sea. Legends and steep and rocks, faces and sounds… In the film, the chant of a country’s history eight century long is passed on.

Director: João César Monteiro
Writer: Carlos D’Oliveira, Esquilo (play), José Gomes Ferreira, João César Monteiro (screenplay), Maria Velho da Costa, Carlos de Oliveira
Actors: Manuela de Freitas, Luís de Sousa Costa, Francisco Domingues, Carmen Duarte

(Veredas, a.k.a. Paths). Monteiros feature-length debut journeys physically and historically through the times and legends of a countryside, in this case rural Portugal from the rocky north of Trs-Os-Montes to the arid plains of the Alentejo, two regions divided by not just landscape, but politics. We conceived it as a political film, recalls cinematographer Accio de Almeida, a dialogue between regional opposites. It reminds me of a story, says one character, and indeed storytelling is Trails delight and focus, where one story immediately launches another. Centuries and times merge into one as we move from place to place: an enchanted Moorish princess here, an old shepherd singing a folk-song there; landowners complaining of communist demonstrators here, old women hopping on their knees in a mountain field there. Sailing ships, buried treasures, military crackdowns, woodcutters, lovers, donkeys, and priests: Monteiro reveals the legends, myths, and heart of his sometimes-beloved Portugal, and connects the dots among ancient fables, farmers songs, and modern cinema.
