Miguel Moraes Cabral, Director, Os Caminhos De Jorge.
Festival Section: International Documentary.
Os Caminhos De Jorge/JORGE’S PATH is a documentary about an elderly man Jorge, living a very traditional life in Northern Portugal. He travels from town to town on his motorbike offering knife sharpening and umbrella-mending services. We meet some of his clients along the way who include an elderly shepherd on crutches and man-about-town Mr.Joao who complain about the dying traditions brought on by modernity, a fact they are struggling to come to terms with.
FRED caught up with director Miguel Moraes Cabral to find out more about his first feature film in the international documentary section of the 31st Torino film festival.
