It is quite well known that there are still some 'ghettos' really close to the center of Lisbon. These neighbourhoods are mythicized as places so dangerous and ungovernable that even the police wouldn't dare set foot in them. In reality, the inhabitants of these areas are forming a very strong and tight community.
Using the method of pure observation, Viktor Németh focuses on depicting the life in ZONA (one of the last ghettos in Amadora, Lisbon), raising a lot of questions: is it an art group, community, or simply a lifestyle? Fragments of visually inven-tive pictures, shattering sounds of electronic music mercilessly ﬂowing from loudspeakers and blurred frames of interac-tions, inaccessible to us, only intensify the mythicized character of ZONA.
