On a cold Christmas Eve, a freighter pulls into a foggy port. Hoping reach land, a stowaway has to overcome his own fears.
There is nothing more dismal than a decaying port, particularly at night. This is the setting for Clandestino (Stowaway), Abi Feijó's bewitching short film, adapted from a story by José Rodrigues Miguéis. Immersed in the mind of a stowaway, the film wants to make us feel his fear. To do this, Feijó uses the technique of sand on glass to create the rich, dense, and melancholic images of the foggy port.
