Name of the town: Much More Novo
Text by Inês Lebreaud
It began as a project.
Jacinto Lucas Pires picked up some postcards he found being sold in the streets of Montemor and had the idea of making a film with stills of the town with a soundtrack from Jörg Ritzenhoff, with recordings of people from multiple nationalities talking about the city in their main languages.
While doing it, Jacinto noticed there was a connection between this and the concept he approached in his previous project. As that happened and both projects were joined in one, this became just a small part of Much More Novo short film.
