Amor Fati

A film by Cláudia Varejão

Synopsis

Amor Fati seeks out parts that complete each other. These are portraits of couples, friends, families and animals with their owners. They share the intimacy of daily life, habits, beliefs, tastes and even some physical traits. From their faces, from the choreography of their gestures, we unveil the story that entwines them. Drawn from everyday life, right before our eyes the film portrays a chorus of affections and the collective memory of a country, summoned Aristophanes' speech at Plato's Banquet: “Isn't that what you aspire to - to identify each other as much as possible, so that you no longer part ways night and day? If that is your aspiration, I am willing to merge and weld you in one piece, so that, instead of two, you become one. ”

Watch film

«For so long, love for one another has been innate in human beings, seeking to bring back the old nature and make two into one and to heal human weakness.»
Aristophanes
