Cinema, Manoel de Oliveira and Me

Year2016 Duration81 min. DirectorJoão Botelho

A photograph is the starting point for this manifesto made through the deepest admiration for Manoel de Oliveira (1908-2015), the most important figure in the history of Portuguese film. Born in Oporto, he died at the age of 106, whereby the necessary creativity and lucidity to film never abandoned him, leaving behind a legacy that is probably unrepeatable. It is as if film kept him alive through a secret pact, his filmography crossed the 20th century and entered into the 21st century accompanied by a timeless breath of extraordinary modernity, whether adapting to the great writers of his country or reviewing the History of Portugal.
