According to the exhibitor, the film will be shown between Friday (11 November) and Sunday in Lisbon, Loulé, Viseu, Funchal, Aveiro, Braga, Matosinhos and Coimbra.
The tickets have “a symbolic cost of five euros and part of the revenue will be donated to a reforestation project to be selected by Casa do Impacto”, which is an innovation hub promoted by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, says the exhibitor.
“From Devil’s Breath” is a 40-minute documentary short film that tells the story of survivors of the fire in Pedrógão Grande, in the summer of 2017, which killed 66 people. The film's production and co-production team brought together several people, including actor Leonardo diCaprio and journalists Tiago Carrasco and Catarina Fernandes Martins.
The recordings for the documentary took place in early 2020 and portray the story of Nádia Piazza, who lost her son and who was president of the Pedrógão Grande Fire Victims Association, of one of those seriously injured, Vítor Neves, of firefighter Sérgio Lourenço, and of Sofia Carmo, promoter of reforestation projects in the affected area.
“From Devil's Breath”, which has already been shown at the Palm Springs Film Festival (USA) and at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26), will be shown on Sunday, the 13th, on the North American channel MSNBC and is available on the Peacock streaming platform.
The film is shown as part of the documentary series “Tipping Point”, by presenter Trevor Noah and production company Time Studios.
