Treasure Hunter
4 min readDec 31, 2022

Here is a full list of goodies from this past year.

Film: “Drive my car” (2021)

What a movie to start a year with! Silently glorious, elegantly moving.

Series: Successions (2018), 3 seasons.

Amazing series to watch for wintery January. Intense, filled with drama, family relations, and management of power. Great writing, casting is on point and acting is powerful. Thanks @matthieuf_ for recommending this! It goes to the top 5 best series of all time in my ratings. 💞

Miniseries: scenes from marriage (2021)

Incredibly real, intense, raw, beautiful, heartfelt. Their experience of each other is a real deal. Acting is on another level.

Exhibition: Street Art by Morro

Pretty awesome to see @guillermolorcagarcia at @mocomuseum in Barcelona. He works with beauty with a haunting feeling. Mixing magic, realism, childlike innocence to create the dreamlike world.

We also got to see @jean_michel_basquiat @kaws @osgemeos @keithharingfoundation @invaderwashere @teamlabshq as well as the first exhibition that included NFT art. And finally the words of @banksy
perfectly reflected the times we are going through at this minute.

Fashion: Lisbon Fashion Week

Spent a couple of days at @factory_lisbon this weekend for Lisbon Fashion Week. Thanks to @lisboafashionweek for the invitation. It was lit 💜

Concerts

Cool vibes at @tashsultanaofficial at Lisbon Colliseum. Tash shared how the last 2.5 years have been for her and how she learned that the only promised thing in life to us, is this very moment🙏 I also got to see Guns and Roses, as well as Backstreet boys, live this year.

Film: King Richard (2021)

Great feel good biopic about the father of the Williams sisters who wrote a plan for them before they were born. A visionary, a salesman, a man that kept on course for his daughter to become the greatest, and their family did it with grace and humility. “No Matter How Them Peoples Treated Her, No Matter How Disrespected, She Stayed Calm, She Kept Her Heart Clean. She Was Humble.”

Exhibition: Vhils at Matt museum

Exhibition : @vhils at @maatmuseum — Prisma. It’s a labyrinth like installation of slow motion video footage taken before the pandemic. I loved how the slow motion got me into a stillness and wonder state. Recommended

Series: Ted Lasso

Entertaining. Only got to see it this year, but the first season was quite entertaining and different. The second season got a little difficult to view due to the slowness of story development.

Documentary: The Minimalism. Less is now

Excited to learn more about minimalism these days. These guys also have podcast series which were entertaining me across December. It’s good to consider having less and gain more value from other aspects of life than stuff.
