Lisbon, Bairro das Colónias, third floor.
Fatumata and Aissato, the mother and the eldest daughter of a large family originally from Guinea-Bissau, discuss love and happiness. As a poem, a story, a letter and a prayer are spoken, words travel from one language to another, from one speaker and one voice to another, creating connections.
At 7 pm, from the third to the fifth floor, a regular sound, always the same, like the beating of a heart, reverberates through the building where the family and the filmmaker lives.
TERCEIRO ANDAR has taken the two different and independent forms of a film and an installation.
With the diptych Third Floor, in a migration to the exhibition space, Luciana Fina once again uses cinematography to question cinema’s narrative forms and matter. The installation, free from narrative priorities, invites the viewer to the space of the word, transmission and translation, and to the physical and acoustic setting of the building.
