Maria de Medeiros’ film is broadcast on RTP1.

Salgueiro Maia is one of the main characters.

This Sunday marks April 25th and RTP1 will broadcast the film “Capitães de Abril” again with Maria de Medeiros, who tells the story of the Carnation Revolution, as usual.

You can see the film in the afternoon from 4:45 p.m. The cast also includes Stefano Accorsi, Joaquim de Almeida, Frédéric Pierrot, Manuel João Vieira, Marcantonio Del Carmo, Rita Durão and Manuel Manquiña.

In just over two hours, the events of the beginning of April 24th and the day of the Revolution are counted in an almost documentary manner, from the withdrawal of Salgueiro Maia and his troops from the barracks of Santarém to the release of the political prisoners of Caxias through the arrest of Marcelo Caetano, the occupation of the Rádio Clube Português or the tragic demonstration in front of the headquarters of the former PIDE.
