Amor Fati

Cláudia Varejão
2020 • Portugal, Switzerland, France • 102’
Portuguese Premiere

Portraits of couples, friends, families and pets and their owners. They share the intimacy of daily life, habits, beliefs, tastes and even some physical traits. Based on their faces and the choreography of their gestures, we unveil the story that binds them, evoking Aristophanes’ speech in Plato’s Symposium: “Do you desire to be wholly one; always day and night to be in one another’s company? For if this is what you desire, I am ready to melt you into one and let you grow together, so that being two you shall become one.”
