Since Surfavela (1996), Joaquim Pinto and Nuno Leonel have been working together, sharing directing credits, a partnership that reached its peak in 2013 in the autobiographical documentary E Agora? Lembra-me, an authentic tour de force that won two important awards at the Locarno festival. Before returning with Pathos Ethos Logos, in 2015 they filmed the documentary Rabo de Peixe.
