A bunch of kids plays in a field, singing little folk verses. In a nearby wood, a group of girls is watched by men in devil costumes, the Caretos. In the evening, some women gather around a fire. Small scenes, vignettes, that are naturally repeated. Inspired by the book “Etnografia Transmontana”, written by Vilar de Perdizes’s renowned parish priest António Fontes, “Moss” is an ethnographic and visual exploration of several elements of the pagan tradition present within the many villages of Trás-os-Montes, where it was filmed.
