The Film

An old woman living in an apartment under a noisy bridge in Porto is preparing lunch. The smell of food attracts the neighborhood dogs. An intimate meeting and a gentle insight into her daily life.


The Music

In this very short film, the music was used only for the opening and closing credits. Most of the soundtrack of this film is made up from environmental sounds in and around the home of the main chacter, with the neighbourhood dog making featured appearances. For the music I used a mandolin.
