The 31-minute film – the original full title is “uma ficção inútil - 小說無用 - tiểu thuyết vô dụng,” in English A Useless Fiction – shows multi-layered fictional and true stories, in which the director draws on scenes from his daily life and the process of filmmaking to address the difficulties of communicating with the audience. Translations, subtitles, and voiceovers raise questions about the power of language and the different interpretations that result from the different languages. In the coming months the film will be presented at the Cinemística Film Festival in Granada and the Festival of Migrant Film in Ljubljana.
