Al Berto.

It’s the summer of ’75 in Sines, Portugal. Al Berto, the writer, embodies an entire moving generation. He and his friends exude youth, eccentricity and hope for the future – but right after the fall of Portugal’s dictatorship system, the country is not yet ready for this love story.

Director.

Vicente Alves do Ó was born in Sines, Portugal. With a diverse background in theatre, literature, TV and cinema, the director and screenwriter is known for his biopics of some of Portugal’s most important poets. In 2016, his play about the life of singer and songwriter António Variações premiered in Lisbon.
