“Filmado entre 1970 e 1999, editado em 2000. Ao caminhar entrevi breves
lampejos de beleza é um registro de sutis sentimentos, emoções, alegrias
diárias, gravadas nas vozes, rostos e pequenas atividades cotidianas das
pessoas que conheci, convivi ou observei – algo que venho filmando há
anos. Isto em oposição às espetaculares, divertidas, sensacionais e dramáticas
situações que dominam grande parte da produção cinematográfica
contemporânea.” – j.m.

 
“Filmed between 1970 and 1999, edited in 2000. As I Was Moving Ahead…
is a record of subtle feelings, emotions, daily joys of people as recorded in
the voices, faces and small everyday activities of people I have met, or lived
with, or observed — something that I have been recording for many years.
This, as opposed to the spectacular, entertaining, sensational, dramatic
activities which dominate much of the contemporary film-making” – j.m.
