Portugal & Cuba, two cultures separated by the ocean.
The intimate relationship that each one maintains with the sea has been the link. This sea has made us look at each other.
The relationship with the distant, the unattainable and with the earth, has returned us to a space of understanding of the human.
This piece asks: What is recorded in the land of the one who leaves for the sea? What's left in which part of what leaves on the ground? What is Saudade?
