Dir. Ico Costa - 68min - Portugal - 2017
In Hindu mythology, RAHU is the severed head of a demon responsible for swallowing the sun and causing the eclipses. It is also Alex Zhang Hungtai, David Maranha, Gabriel Ferrandini, Júlia Reis and Pedro Sousa, all five in the dark, in circle, vociferating to each other, with their arms their feet their nerves, a growing, raw tension, without term, sipping restlessness through a testimony of the exploratory music in contemporary Lisbon.
"deep blackness is repeatedly broken by five musicians, their grimacing faces, fast playing limbs, saxophones, drums and guitars lit in chiaroscuro white. Listening to their detonating refrain, I twitched involuntarily: a physical symptom of my comprehension of film, evolving in real time." The White Review http://ow.ly/DyD450BvpeK
