“When I read the story ‘The Teacher’, from the writer Joaquim Bispo, I considered that it was, at the same time, fun and serious: it is a story in which 3 people transmit clearly their emotions and thoughts in the context of a stable romantic relationship between a couple, and an unforeseen physical attraction towards the feminine element, by a third person”, explains director Margarida Moreira.
