. In 2010 “CONTRACT” was nominated for Audience Favorite Documentary Award at the 18th annual Pan African Film & Arts Festival where it had its World Premiere. “CONTRACT” became the first Cape Verdean and São Tomé and Príncipe film ever to be the recipient of an Award for Best Documentary Filmmaking at the 12th Annual Roxbury International Film Festival. Director Pires’ film is not only a powerful emotional experience, but also an unyielding look into the past and the legacy of slavery, poverty, family, and love.
