Original title: Viagem ao Coração do Douro, a Terra Onde Nasci

«Throughout, childhood memories, glancing impressions of sound, colours and features of Douro, my soul and eyes are wide open in absolute submission to the greatness of this demented river and to the no less monumental, tragical and glorious tale of the men who transform its borders in order to create the world’s most famous wine. The gathering of great writers who tried to describe it or poets that sang about it - having the river constantly slipping through their fingers, as it happened to me, immense as it is - left on my hands a rough sketch of a documentary: this tiny film.»
