première of the documentary by Armação do Artist

Clube de Tavira 

Álvaro de Campos (my most hysterically hysteric) ... was born in Tavira on 15th October1890 (at 1.30 in the afternoon ...; and it is true since it matches his horoscope for that time.)

In Letters to Casais Monteiro, 13 Jan 1935, Fernando Pessoa

"This is the fourth video documentary produced by Armação do Artista, directed by me and involving the Tavirense community in the creative act. In our line of work we approach people who live in community and visitors that circulate around the city. We challenge them to respond to a "theme question" We focus the protagonism on the interviewee, without preparation, Fernando Pessoa and the city of Tavira themselves are central characters."
