At the time of his full retrospective in Paris, and "following the migration of monarch butterflies that run away from the cold weather of North America," João Pedro Rodrigues answers the question made by the Centre George Pompidou, "Where are you now, João Pedro Rodrigues?", through a poetic, introspective, metamorphosing self-portrait, which at the same time summons the memory of his life trajectory - which is intertwined with his existence as an author – and meditates on his identity, his recurrent desires and themes of loss and discovery, from carnality to transcendence, through adaptations of texts by David Thoreau and Nathaniel Hawthorne. João Pedro Rodrigues is one of the most important authors in Portuguese cinema of the 21st century. (Salette Ramalho)
