Sombras Brancas

Directed by: Fernando Vendrell
Feature film, 2023

At 71 years old, notable writer José Cardoso Pires suffers a stroke which affects his discourse and his ability to interact with the world around him. Unable to communicate, the writer no longer recognizes words; he can no longer articulate them or even write them down. Sombras Brancas is a narrative about overcoming disease, a clear manifesto on coming back to life and a reconciliation with the world through the writing of José Cardoso Pires. This is free and original adaptation of the writer’s unique oeuvre DE PROFUNIDS, VALSA LENTA; and an act of homage to its author.
