Monographics

Gabriel Abrantes will be the guest of honour at the second session of “Monographics”, a series in which we review the most outstanding work of young directors and chat with them after the screening.

Gabriel Abrantes’s films reference the absurd, folklore, humour and politics, altering traditional narratives to create unlikely layers of interpretation.
