The fourth film of the coordinator of the GEA will have operator woman as protagonist


Margarita Ledo, coordinator of the Audiovisual Studies Research Group, has started today with the shooting of her fouth feature film: Nación, um sítio onde pousar a cabeça. Under this title, that recalls a verse of the Portuguese poet Manuel António Pina, a story of intimacy is hidden, defined by Nós Produtora Cinematográfica Galega como the intimacy of “the operator women that, from the farmland and the sea, accesses to the industrial work”.

Among the film locations, O Castro (Sada), Pontesampaio (Pontevedra), Noalla, Illa Lobeira, Castro de Rei, Vilaboa and Compostela are included. In addtion to Ledo’s direction and script, Nación will have Alberte Branco as photography director and Mercedes Peón music in the soundtrack. The original idea of the film comes from the year 2015 and has been awarded the Luísa Villalta prize of the Deputación da Coruña to”ideas and projects for equality”, and is also one of the projects proyectos chosen by Agadic for its line of grants to audiovisual production.

Nación is filming the lives as an index, a vestige, a signal of a time that has disappeared and returns to emerge in the seek of that place ‘onde pousar a cabeça'”, concludes the presentation text of the film.
