Weeks of sand, months of ash, years of dust / Semanas de areia, meses de cinza, anos de pó

Running time: 20

Through the form of a personal yet distant essay film, “Weeks of sand, months of ash, years of dust” introduces Macao, a former Portuguese colony handed over back to China in 1999. Having partly grown up in Macao, the filmmaker revisits the learned history of this territory from a Portuguese perspective, addressing post-imperial forms of disavowed political affect alongside the progressing dementia of her own mother.
