Legua – Watch the trailer for the new Portuguese film from Filipa Reis and João Miller Guerra

At an old manor house in northern Portugal, Ana helps her friend, Emília, the elderly housekeeper who is determined to continue to keep the unoccupied house in order for the owners who are never there. As the seasons turn, Mónica, Ana’s daughter, challenges her mother’s choices and the three generations of women search to understand where they belong in a world that is rapidly fading, where the cycle of life is renovated only through inevitable endings.

The film is directed by Filipa Reis & João Miller Guerra. It stars Carla Maciel (Ana), Fátima Soares (Emília), Vitória Nogueira da Silva (Mónica), Sara Machado (Sofia), Paulo Calatré (Victor), and Manuel Mozos (Guilherme).

Screen International had the first trailer for Legua which will be playing as part of the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight.
