Part of Film series NYFF60 at BAM
Directed by João Pedro Rodrigues | 2022

With Joel Branco, Vasco Redondo, Mauro Costa

Transgressive queer auteur João Pedro Rodrigues’s (The Ornithologist, O Fantasma) outré “musical fantasia” begins in the year 2069, when Portugal’s King Alfredo recalls from his deathbed his erotic exploits and social activism as a fresh-faced, curly-haired prince in the early years of the 21st century. The young man shocks his riotously wealthy royal family by becoming a volunteer fireman—both to do his part for a rural landscape prone to devastating wildfires and, it seems, to douse his own dormant desires amidst a bevy of beefcake firefighters. Rodrigues’s delirious and delicious anything-goes style has never felt more joyous than in this curiously hopeful, sexually frank confection that engages in questions of climate change, racial and economic inequity, and governmental inadequacy, while also indulging in bawdy humor and song-and-dance flights of fancy. A Strand Releasing release.

Alice Diop (We) constructs a highly sensitive, superbly acted film—part courtroom drama, part psychological portraiture, part inquiry into human agency—about the limits of myth and cross-cultural knowledge.
