After centuries of occupation the city of Lisbon keeps transforming its landscape, building its own concept of civilization on top of previous occupations. The shanty towns are gone, giving way to social housing estates along Lisbon’s memory destitute periphery. Karlon – born at Pedreira dos Húngaros and a pioneer of Creole rap – ran away from the neighborhood where he was forced to live, and went out looking for the ghosts and spirits of the past in the deserted suburbs, thus expressing the conflict between the individual and the territory, the oppression exerted by society and its rules and conventions on individual freedom.
