Audio Tracks 

Our Land, Our Altar witnesses the latest daily routines in the Aleixo social housing, marked by the tension of a forced destiny. Between the fall of the first and the last tower, the demolition process has dragged on for years, leaving the lives of the residents in suspense. Obliged to accept the end of their community, they watch helplessly the slow disfigurement of their past.
