THE DOMAIN: series version of Tiago Guedes's epic work premieres on RTP 1, in prime time
After the huge international success and in theaters in Portugal (it made close to 80 thousand espectators), the film The Domain, by Tiago Guedes, produced by Paulo Branco, is about to reach the television screens, now in the "series" version. RTP 1 will broadcast, in prime time and exclusively, the series The Domain, divided into four episodes. On April 30th, at 9.45pm, the first two episodes will be broadcast; the remaining two episodes will occupy the same schedule on the following day, May 1st.
The Domain starts from an original idea by Paulo Branco and portrays the saga of a family that owns one of the largest estates in Europe, on the south side of the Tagus River. Starring Albano Jerónimo and Sandra Faleiro - with absolutely brilliant interpretations, as well as the rest of the cast, which includes several of the best national actors and actresses and some great young promises - we are invited to dive deeply into the secrets of this Estate, in a unique series that makes the portrait of the historical, political, social and financial life of Portugal, from the 1940s, going through the Revolution of April 25th and up to the present day.
RTP - Rádio e Televisão Portuguesa was co-producer of the film, which established itself as one of the great cinematographic works of the year 2019, nationally, and beyond borders. It was part of the Official Selection of the competitive section of the Venice Film Festival (where there was no Portuguese director for a decade and a half), and the prestigious Special Presentations section of the Toronto Film Festival, an achievement achieved by few films worldwide. Since then it has been shown at several film festivals all over the world. It was also the Portuguese choice for the Oscar nomination for Best International Film.
