The creator of Madre Paula / The King’s Favorite, distributed by BetaFilm has it’s new TV miniseries in the editing room, Red Light:

Red Light

Directed by Self Destructive Boys’ Marco Leão et André Santos, Red Light / "Luz Vermelha" was produced by Vende-se Filmes’ Filipa Jardim Reis. The screenwriter Patrícia Müller researched and wrote Red Light inspired by a true story known as “mothers of Bragança”. A city in northern Portugal “invaded” by foreign prostitutes got huge media coverage when the local female population was determined to strike back in order to save their marriages. A case of human traffic for investigative journalism. The cast is brilliant: South’s Afonso Pimentel, Margarida Vila-Nova, and Adriano Carvalho, a surprisingly Negócio da China’s Joaquim Monchique, Golpe de Sorte’s Henriqueta Maya, 2018 Emmy-winner The Payback’s Sofia Nicholson, 2011 Emmy-winner Blood Ties’ João Baptista, the première of Mariana Badam, the characters of Mayor’s family (Dinarte Branco, Maria João Pinho, Bruna Quintas and Luís Ganito), their couple friends (Ângela Marques and The King’s Favorite’s Paulo Calatré), 3 Women’s João Lagarto as editor-in-chief, the alcoholic journalist Cesário Monteiro, the Foreigners and Borders Service officers Graciano Dias, Duarte Grilo and João Araújo and the prostitutes performed by Sara Norte, Renata Ferraz, Cecília Henriques and Joana Pialgata.

Tó Trips partage ses premières impressions après avoir vu les deux premiers épisodes of South in IndieLisboa.

Afonso Pimentel is one of the best actors of his generation:

Matilha’s Afonso Pimentel, it's a name to remember and a character of what is unique. The uniqueness of each being and not just a small-time crook.

The detective Alice is described by the actress Jani Zhao herself:
