Where Do You Stand Now, João Pedro Rodrigues? (2016)

Où en êtes-vous, João Pedro Rodrigues?
2016 | Portugal | João Pedro Rodrigues | ★★★

A well-crafted short film comprised of reflective, autobiographical passages, Portuguese director João Pedro Rodrigues's mildly stimulating Where Do You Stand Now, João Pedro Rodrigues? proves to be of only moderate interest.


"A lyrical self-portrait that offers an important and explicitly autobiographical complement to The Ornithologist. Intermingling home movie footage with solitary wanderings and memories of his early career and partnership with João Rui Guerra da Mata, Rodrigues’ new film looks back from the vantage of mid life to meditate on the people and experiences that helped shape his vision and voice."
