MYTH AND MEMORY - A PORTRAIT OF CATHOLIC GOA (India, 2005-2007)

After 500 years as a Portuguese colony, in 1961 Goa became a part of India. Many of the Catholic residents fled to Lisbon. Some have returned, while others have remained in Portugal. The consequence was a flood of intercultural, nostalgic stories, in which myths slowly grew into accounts of things which really happened. A quarter of the residents of Goa are still Catholic. With the departure of the colonial power, this group remained behind with a culture and religion that is alien to their region. Time seems to stand still in their homes; the Catholic residents of Goa try to familiarize themselves with an uncertain future and a new identity.
