Spot MotelX 2017 – Devils

Direcção de fotografia dos spots publicitários do MOTELX – Festival Internacional de Cinema de Terror de Lisboa de 2017.
Inspirado na tradição do Dia dos Diabos, celebrado em Vinhais na Quarta-feira de cinzas, em que as figuras da Morte e do Diabo percorrem as ruas da vila procurando as almas pecadoras. Os diabos perseguem e capturam as raparigas que se atrevem a sair à rua, “purificando-as” com cinturadas e apresentando-as perante a Morte que, empunhando uma gadanha, as obriga, de joelhos, a recitar umas estranhas ladainhas semi-pagãs:
“Padre-nosso, caldo grosso, carne gorda não tem osso, rilha-o tu que eu não posso. Salve rainha, mata a galinha, põe-na a cozer, dá cá a borracha que quero beber.”

Director of photography of the advertising spots for MOTELX – Lisbon International Horror Film Festival 2017.
Inspired by the Devil’s Day tradition, celebrated in Vinhais on Ash Wednesday, when the figures of the Death and the Devil walk around the streets of the village looking for sinful souls. The devils pursue and capture the girls who dare to come out, “purifying” them by hitting them with their belts and presenting them to the Death who, holding a scythe, forces them to recite strange semi-pagan litanies on their knees.
