A Complement to the Environment
Documentary
Running Time: 72'
Year of production: 2006

Anything can happen when you live in a quarter between the railway and the sea. This train journey comes to an end in the town of Lagos. Meia-Praia is the name and the birthplace of the “Indians”, who spontaneously built their huts to survive the golden dream that Lagos was not able to fulfil.

With the revolution in April 25, 1974, came the development of an architectural plan. Entitled SAAL (Portuguese acronym for the program of Ambulatory Support to Local Residents), this plan was established to re-qualify the urban arrangement of the shackled huts and to transform them into houses built by their own dwellers under the direction of architects and specialized technicians. Many of the promises made by politicians thirty years ago are yet to be fulfilled.
