The Boats

A film by Dominga Sotomayor

A Chilean actress (50) travels to Lisbon representing a film where she has a secondary role, since nobody else was available to go. In the Q&A in the Cinematheque she doesn’t know quite how to answer the audience’s questions. The next day she has plans to get to know the city, but she ends up with a Portuguese stranger in an abandoned area on the other side of the bay.
