As part of the 17th edition of KINO - German Expression Film Festival, organized by the Goethe-Institut Portugal in partnership with the Austrian, Swiss and Luxembourg Embassies, the film ELDORADO, a feature by Rui Eduardo Abreu, Thierry Besseling and Loïc Tanson about Portuguese emigration in Luxembourg, will be shown on January 30th at 6:30pm. The film is followed by a round table discussion with Portuguese emigration specialists and researchers from the University of Lisbon, with Dr. Jorge Malheiros and Dr. Pedro Candeias, where the context of recent Portuguese emigration will be discussed and reflected on the migration path and the search for an "Eldorado" in general. +
ELDORADO was produced by SAMSAFILM and premiered in 2016, but was thought out and 'created' during the years of the crisis when Portuguese emigration to Luxembourg was particularly strong. Isabel and Fernando arrived in Luxembourg in this epoch, and the accounts of their life paths show us what recent Portuguese emigration to Luxembourg can be like. The lives of Carlos and Jonathan are no less conditioned by migration, although in a very different way. They are part of the "second generation", of "neither here nor there". The film shows how the four people, for three years, have found their 'Eldorado'.
