ABOUT THE COLORFUL EXPRESSION COLLECTION
“É transmitido, numa paleta muito visceral e particularmente forte de cores sobre tela, sob rostos perdidos no meio do nosso quotidiano urbano ou não, estórias de gente esquecida, marginalizada, maltratada, vulgar, mas únicas no próprio jogo da vida. Porque o somos. Carlos Teixeira narra vidas contadas como novelas policromadas, numa (in)decência humana e gritante.” (Vieira Duque)
