Today, I throwback to 2011. Specifically to: "A Parideira" ("The Breeder") is a 20-minute Portuguese short film by José Miguel Moreira starring Diogo, Ana Moreira, and José Pinto. This film is about the journey of a young couple and their inability to conceive. Filmed in Portugal, it was released in March of 2011.
As the story goes, there is a miraculous cave called the Breeder (a Parideira). The cave, which is guarded by a mysterious old pastor (José Pinto), is located somewhere on top of a mountain range. Legend has it that if an infertile woman enters the cave, she will leave the cave already pregnant. However, the downside to this is that, in order for such a miracle to happen, one person has to stay back and sacrifice their life in the cave that same night.
Margarida (Ana Moreira) and her husband, Tiago (Diogo), are a young couple who have been trying to get pregnant without success. On the brink of hopelessness, this yearning motivates Margarida to return to her roots with her husband and as a last alternative, enter this cave to try to get pregnant. Unbeknownst to the couple, the pastor has a sinister plan in store for them.
Below is the trailer for "A Parideira."
