"Cru" (Raw) is an observational documentary film shot and produced in Porto, Portugal. On the one hand, this film partly falls under the genre where a specific point of view of a city, its existence and identity grows into a full character. On the other, also falls in line with the observational documentary practice without interviews, testimonies or voice overs. The film took almost a decade to be concluded. The narrative includes content shot on institutions such as the Tribunal, the Hospital, the University, the Police, and the Prison. The film intends to discuss and question modern society values and human nature through a non-linear contemporary portrait of intimate life stories. The narrative does not intend to focus on a specific character or on a single theme or story. The open-ended story line emerges by comparing and contrasting different realities and subjects that aim to create a common ground for discussion. Violence, education, health, poverty, the role of our institutions in the organization of life and the ethical and moral quality of our society represent the main body for reflection.
