The Tsugua Diaries

Miguel GOMES, Maureen FAZENDEIRO Portugal 101 Min PG13 (Some Coarse Language) Southeast Asian Premiere

A summer’s tale of romance and countryside pastimes unfolds as a performance of life and its making by creatives in lockdown.

Living in a country house in summer, three friends—Crista, Carloto and João—are entangled in romance and melodrama, all while indulging in coveted leisure: mindlessly dancing in the dark, lazing in a sparkling clear blue pool, and picking fruits from a lush garden. The only activity that seems to anchor time is the erection of a butterfly house assembled over a few days and chronicled in reverse.
