A visually stunning, visceral depiction of the ancient ritual of ox fighting
Pedro Lino’s short documentary sweeps across rough, sun-drenched Portuguese landscapes before plunging the viewer right into the midst of the chegas de bois, the ancient ritual of ox fighting. The effect is visceral, simultaneously evoking a timeless quality in the terrain and the immediacy of the fight.
