SOB CEUS ESTRANHOS / UNDER STRANGE SKIES

book and dvd, 17 x 22 cm, tinta-da-china, lisboa, 2007

During the Second World War, Lisbon, like Casablanca, was a corridor for refugees going from Hitler's occupied territories to America. This book tells two parallel stories about exile and accommodation. Through a narrated memoir and photographs, the tale of a German Jewish family that decided to stay in Portugal is recounted. The larger, more sociological account of artists who used Lisbon's escape route is skilfully told as well, using beautifully shot historic footage and written memoirs by some of the era's leading intellectuals including Heinrich Mann (The Blue Angel) and Alfred Doeblin (Berlin Alexanderplatz). This book evokes a desperate, intensely romantic period of exile, despair and, ultimately, freedom.

film narrated by Bruno Ganz, 57 min., digital, color, 2002
