Their Land, Our Home
Weaving legend and reality, ‘Their Land, Our Home’ is a snap shot of the final days of the neighbourhood of Santa Filomena, one of Portugal’s last shantytowns.
Through the testimony of those whose homes are being destroyed by the governments out dated slum clearance program we see that what is being lost are not just houses but a community,
an identity and feeling of belonging. These are things that, once destroyed, are not easily rebuilt.
