Film and thought blend in a narrative which combines memory and imagination to reflect upon the concepts of death, hope and quest.


Marta Alvim (1979, Lisbon. MA Film Studies) is a visual artist, writer and filmmaker. 
Her work is a formal investigation into man and modern day society, exploring convergences between experimental cinema and contemporary art through photography, installation, sound and cinematic narratives (film and video).

Her work explores the concepts of time, consciousness and reality in a critical discourse that focuses upon the spiritual and social aspects of the human condition. Since 2007, it has been shown in galleries, museums, art centers and festivals in various countries.
