Pedro Costa’s film is a confluence of documentary and fiction. His protagonist, Vanda, is a non-professional actor who performs in scenes set in her own neighbourhood in the Lisbon slums. Vanda is either selling vegetables in the street or taking drugs in the one-room hovel that she shares with her sister, as the neighbourhood is literally torn down around them by the local authorities. In this framing, Costa offers a rich vision of place and of human defiance in the face of urban planning from above.
Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
