Stubbornly looking at the ruins of a commune I search for augurs. For instance: “Fair weather
for drifters.” I wander by foot across times, erratically shooting images and recording sounds
through the kaleidoscopic spatiality of Alentejo, a Portuguese region named after a river,
beyond a river. As walking offers unexpected encounters and co-presences, missives are sent
to and from the margins. For instance: “growing organs for the alternative.” My senses are
partial, precarious and fragmentary, but not my orientation: There is an everyday struggle for
the fulgor being fought and I want to be in it. Against a firmament of dispossession of land,
bodies and social bonds, we are getting ready. For instance: “On the level!” The fulgor is
mobile, the prefigured community dispersed and diverse. Through dissent and associations
of affinity, autonomy and re-enchantment, the offer of cinema could be to let us flourish on
