UK PREMIERE

Correspondences (Correspondências)

Part of the Documentaries Strand

Body

Correspondences was inspired by the letters exchanged between two leading Portuguese poets, Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen and Jorge de Sena, during the exile of the latter (1957-78). He was forced to leave Portugal due to political circumstances and would never return to his home country. The correspondence between the two poets is a testimony to their quest for freedom during a period when Portugal’s fascist regime was under increasing pressure. But their letters also offer an insight into the profound affinity between two human beings.
