In Vanda's Room poster

English Title: In Vanda’s Room
Contracosta Produções
Starring:
 Vanda Duarte, Lena Duarte
Directed by: Pedro Costa

Synopsis: An unblinking docudrama about a heroine addict and her family living in a poor housing district of Lisbon which is being demolished all around them.

Kitty Cameos and Purr Blurs: Most of the shots in this film are long segments filmed with a stationary camera. Several cats are seen throughout, melding into the landscape of the poverty-stricken area. Most of these are seen in a cluttered area outside, except for an extreme close up of a tabby cat sleeping.
