Freedom Day

In Portugal, April 25 is Dia da Liberdade (Freedom Day), commemorating the start of the Carnation Revolution.

After my recent re-viewing of Pedro Costa's Colossal Youth, I have a lot to say about political contexts and timeline in the film (some specific to April 25). I haven't seen most of these discussed in English, so hopefully I can help bring these issues and contexts to better light. Some of these ideas were addressed by Costa in 2 recent interviews excerpted at Ainda não começámos a pensar. The interviews are in Portuguese, and I don't have time to translate now, but I will reference them again in my upcoming post on Colossal Youth.
