Our Lady of the Chinese Shop
World premiere: Locarno Festival 2022 / Concorso Cineasti del Presente
When a chinese merchant brings to a neighbourhood of Luanda a peculiar holy plastic figure of Our Lady, a mourning mother will seek peace, a committed barber starts a new cult and a stray kid will look for revenge for his lost friend. This delicate urban tale will reveal a family and city facade full of resentment, greed and torment.
