First work of the master and the oldest film to be screened in Porto/Post/Doc, "Working in the Douro River" is a symphony of a city, enchanted by the daily tradition of human labor and surprised with the new phenomena of modernity (as the bridge D. Luís). This is a love story to the Douro river and shows us how Oliveira is, since the 30s, at the forefront of cinematic art.
