SYNOPSIS:

For the extraordinarily beautiful second film in his Fontainhas trilogy, Pedro Costa jettisoned his earlier films’ larger crews to burrow even deeper into the Lisbon ghetto and the lives of its desperate inhabitants. With the intimate feel of a documentary and the texture of a Vermeer painting, In Vanda’s Room takes an unflinching, fragmentary look at a handful of self-destructive, marginalized people, but is centered around the heroin-addicted Vanda Duarte. Costa presents the daily routines of Vanda and her neighbors with disarming matter-of-factness, and through his camera, individuals whom many would deem disposable become vivid and vital. This was Costa’s first use of digital video, and the evocative images he created remain some of the medium’s most astonishing.

Lizbon’un gecekondu mahallelerinden birinde yaşayan Vanda, sokakta sebze satarak geçinmeye çalışmaktadır. Sebze satmadığı zamanlarda ise kız kardeşi Zita ile yaşadığı tek odalı bir evde uyuşturucu kullanarak günlerini geçirmektedir. Film, mahallesi kentsel dönüşüme giren Vanda’nın yaşamından kesitler sunuyor bizlere. Cannes Film Festivali’nde de gösterimi yapılan No Quarto da Vanda (In Vanda’s Room) – Vanda’nın Odasında, tepeden inme kentsel planlama karşısında zengin bir mekan ve insani bir direniş vizyonu sunuyor.
