The Nothingness Club
World premiere: IFFR 2023 / Big Screen Competition
A psychological thriller inside the head of iconic Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. Inhabited by his heteronyms, Pessoa manages to fulfil all his dreams in life. But the entrance on the scene of a sophisticated woman, very different from the Ophelia of the real world, destabilises The Club. At the same time, the outrageous avant-garde heteronym of Álvaro de Campos violently disputes Pessoa's authority.
