CINEMAS #1 na noite desaparecida
Jantar no bar da faculdade com passagem de filmes, antes do dia 29 de fevereiro (ou seja, no dia 28 à noite)
este ano não é bissexto…o dia que falta, o 29 desaparecido
…o desaparecimento das imagens…no escuro da noite…voltam…nem sempre da mesma maneira
ficámos sem imagem ou sem som?
tudo foi levado
na noite desaparecida
o plano deste primeiro cinemas passa por ocupar o bar da faculdade… durante um par de horas, não mais… perto da hora em que será engolido o dia 29 de fevereiro deste ano, fazendo desse buraco que engole, o sítio onde se podem mostrar os filmes: múltiplos e muitos e variados e em série…

In this film, I love the way spoken words seem able to erupt at any time or anywhere, and almost always excessively; I like the outdoor pool somewhere in Sicily; I like the mix of tragedy, comedy and musical. The scene I have chosen in Youtube have it all. It begins in a television studio and ends in the middle of a pool, crossed by this amnesiac Michele singing…
