Laura Gonçalves on her short "O Homem do Lixo"

Sunday 5 February 2023, by Abla Kandalaft, Brasserie du Court team

On a hot August afternoon, the family gathers at the table. The memories of each are crossed to tell the story of uncle Botão. From the dictatorship to the emigration to France, where he worked as a garbage man, and when he arrived with the van filled with “garbage”he transformed into treasures.

What a man uncle Botão clearly was! Laura Gonçalves paints a tender and heart-warming portrait of a hard-working man who seems to have been as eccentric as he was likeable.
