Rescuing Oral Memory

Citadocs @ São Vítor:
Mini-documentaries about São Vítor’s “ilhas”.

Porto is a city with a lot of ilhas (small historical enclaves from the industrialization era). They are a vivid heritage of the inhabitants’ solidarity. In parallel we realize that the gentrification phenomenon is a prominent reality: sooner or later, the genuineness and the architectural identity of those “illhas” will be lost. Our aim is to map these places with mini-documentaries about current socio-cultural environments in the ilhas, with a focus on the great concentration that exists in Rua de São Víctor, near the historical Fontainhas neighbourhood.
