Like Cattle | Experimental
Matilde Calado, Portugal
An analysis of Alfred Hitchcock’s behaviour with his actresses in his movie sets.
Taking archive pictures and intertwining them with images of an XXI century woman, exploiting our audio senses, an experimental look is created. This allows us to have a different perspective on a period of them in the film making industry where many actresses were victims of a sexist panorama.
About Matilde Calado, “A young filmmaker that portrays what is closest to her, the things that are dearest to her, in her very special way. Always with projects where intimacy is shown with generosity and fondness. Her movies are Lacking in embellishments because the beauty in them is in the little details. She started by making documentary films, like ‘The Birth Statement’ and ‘Photographs That I Never Took’. Recently this filmmaker made her first fiction ‘Alice by Night’.” – Sara N. Santos
