The Matriarch


Moving Image Super 8 film | 2020
           
            In a time where the world has been hit by a global pandemic, I capture my grandmother’s fears and worries through phone calls during lockdown. Through the fear that came with this uncertain period of time she remained lighthearted, loving and funny over the phone. Shot prominently in her house, in a secluded corner half an hour outside of Porto she goes about her daily chores, tending to chickens, gardening and preparing food.

Shot on 8mm before and after the lockdown in Portugal.
