Inspired by two Raul Brandão's works (Os Pescadores, 1923; and As Ilhas desconhecidas, 1926), Rodrigo Areias take us to the fishing community of Ribeira Quente, at S. Miguel Island, Azores archipelago, to compose a patchwork of wandering narratives that intersect people, characters and ghosts that coexist in this singular and complex territory. Halfway between the anthropological and the poetical, Hálito Azul depicts this specific space and the people who live there (who live and die at the sea) and that have been moulding it, during centuries, according to their necessities. But it's also interested in the inverse process, for the fascination fuelled by the man about local superstitions and mysticism. (Paulo Cunha)
