Cinemundus 2019 // The Wild Pear Tree

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

—Lao-Tzu

Every year thousands of students from around the world travel to study at schools in other countries looking for new experiences — aiming to improve their skills and knowledge, challenging themselves as they face different cultures and education systems, dealing everyday with diverse ways of living. Presenting their own identity, friendships and fond attachments begin and grow, and these youngsters show us how diversity enhances the human spirit as interrelationship transforms the world into something bigger and better. These students carry a restless gaze, insatiably peering at new experiences and creating a multitude of stories to share and make sense - actually, this very same gaze comes near to a definition of motion pictures. “Seeing is in itself a movement”, wrote a French artist. Cinema is an artistic and cultural phenomenon that engages as an agent of global transformation, and interestingly, it’s also a way for us to relate as individuals with different perspectives and focus — it allows us to know notable worlds, moving briefly to other places, hence being exposed to other realities, sometimes bursting, other times everlasting places: exquisite locations of imagination, memory, identity and emotion. In a sense each movie at these film sessions share these topics, offering a specific vision, never imposing and rather inviting the viewer to leap into it and choose his stand.

This is the fourth edition of CineMundus film sessions, dedicated to mobility students that are currently studying at Porto. This event is promoted by the Rectory of the University of Porto, the Erasmus+ International Office and the Fine Arts Faculty, featuring three films by three directors from diverse regions and nationalities.

It’s screened at the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Fine Arts (FBAUP), and Casa Comum Auditorium (U.Porto Rectory), on three Thursdays nights - 21H - in October and November.

In this mesmerising and moving story of discovery, Sinan, a young rising author, returns from college to pursue his passion for literature, but faces a problematic family dynamic caused by his father's gambling addiction, which leaves his mother and sister restless. While trying to refocus on this family drama, Sinan also tries to deal with this new stage of his life. His search for meaning and guidance becomes the source of long and dense conversations that form the emotional and intellectual structure of the film.

Nesta hipnótica e comovente história de descoberta, Sinan, um jovem autor em ascensão, regressa da faculdade para seguir a sua paixão pela literatura, mas depara-se com uma complicada dinâmica familiar causada pelo vício do jogo do seu pai que deixa a mãe e a irmã desesperadas. Enquanto se reorganiza neste drama familiar, Sinan tenta também lidar com a nova fase da sua vida. A sua busca de sentido e orientação torna-se a fonte de longas e densas conversas que formam a estrutura emocional e intelectual do filme.
