How many members of a family get dragged into the web of the political police on the arrest of one single political prisoner? How do you give form to someone who disappeared without having had a historical existence? Taking as its starting point the photographs taken by the Portuguese political police (1926-1974), Luz Obscura seeks to reveal how an authoritarian system operates within the family intimacy, simultaneously revealing areas of repression which mould the present.
