Os Motivos de Reinaldo

Reinaldo's Motifs

In 1927, Reinaldo Ferreira, a well-known journalist and writer who published under the pen name 'Repórter X', founded the cinema production company Repórter X Film, through which he directed four films that same year. Among them O Táxi no. 9297 and Rita ou Rito?..., where homosexuality, transvestism and drug use feature explicitly in Portuguese cinema for the first time. Reinaldo's Motifs is an audiovisual essay that plays with a series of recurrent motifs in Reinaldo Ferreira's cinematic work in a manner that is playful but also unreverential.
