Essence of "Aqui/Here"


"Aqui"
is the portuguese designation for the word "Here".

The title of the movie "Aqui/Here" suggests in it's essence, the union between both of the project's main languages: Portuguese and English.

The title “Aqui!/Here!” has strong references to signalling in urban maps indicating the citizen’s current location and it is precisely this dialogue with the confrontation of global and local dynamics in contemporary cities it wishes to address.
The project will allow questioning resemblances and differences between public spaces and urban experiences in a globalized world and, ultimately, the irreducible importance of place in people’s lives.
