On the 25th April 1974 a military coup overthrew the oldest Western dictatorship without spilling a drop of blood. The country’s rocky path to democracy and the end of the last European Colonial Empire put Portugal in the International spotlight.
Some of the most renown photographers and documentary makers in the world flocked to Lisbon to record the events: Glauber Rocha, Robert Kramer, Thomas Harlan, Pea Holmquist, Santiago Alvarez, Sebastião Salgado, Guy Le Querrec, Dominique Issermann, Jean Gaumy, etc.
They were coming from May 68, Vietnam, Chile, and dreaming of a different world.
What did they find in Portugal? What was their take on the events?
The research for this documentary brought to light around 40 foreign films about the Carnation Revolution.

თსუ კამოეშის ცენტრი 25 აპრილს 18:30-ზე მართავს ღონისძიებას მიხაკების რევოლუციის 40 წლისთავთან დაკავშირებით (25 აპრილი 1974).
ეს იყო მშვიდობიანი რევოლუცია, რომელმაც დაასრულა 40 წლიანი ფაშისტური დიქტატურა პორტუგალიაში. ხალხი, არმიის ნაწილთან ერთად ქუჩაში გავიდა, რათა ებრძოლათ თავისუფლებისათვის და კოლონოიალური ომის დასასრულებისათვის.
