A show based on the testimonies, letters and memories of women who were arrested by PIDE during the Estado Novo. Women who suffered sleep deprivation torture, “statue” torture, but most of all the torture of being denied their freedom. Women who were grandmothers, mothers, daughters, wives, girlfriends, lovers, companions, comrades. Women who are not historical figures inside a dusty book, but who really existed, who we might still walk past in the street and whose hearts hold hard memories. «Courage Today, Embraces Tomorrow» is a testimony written from face-to-face interviews, which reveals the personal side of the inhuman experiences suffered by these women. So that the memory remains.
