Named after F.W. Murnau and Robert Flaherty's 1931 classic, TABU is an intoxicating mix of formal daring, political commentary, haunting romance and exquisite beauty. Filmed in black and white, and divided into two parts—"Paradise Lost," set in the present and filmed in 35mm, followed by an extended flashback to the bygone "Paradise," rendered in beautifully grainy Super 16mm—TABU intertwines a chronicle of illicit love with a subtle overview of Portugal's colonial history and its reverberations in the present.
