Traça (Moth) 18'20'', HD, colour, 2016. PT. English subtitles.
'Traça' (Moth) is composed of three episodes based on the biographies of three well known historical figures: Jean Marc Gaspard Itard, Marie Antoinette and Friedrich Nietzsche. Having very different life stories, they have in common a time of devastation in their personal relationships. Those moments of downfall binds them together and it is through them that one can reveal the mechanisms of reflection of their inner lives, in an attempt to break the linearity and the narrowness with which we are used to hear their stories.
