When the Light Goes Out

A collection of photographs from the Municipal Museum in Coruche, a small town in central Portugal, forms the subject of this video essay by Tania Sofia Oliveira Prates. The film gives us a glimpse of daily life in mid-20th century Portugal and reminds us of the important role of photography in documenting culture.
