Following on from his earlier films, Bones, In Vanda’s Room and Colossal Youth, Pedro Costa takes his portrayal of the lives of Cape Verdean immigrants living in Lisbon’s former slum area Fontainhas to another level of cinematic intensity and rigour.
He has us follow his protagonist Ventura into the dense chiaroscuro of a nocturnal, dreamlike world where the old man’s memories merge with the stories of other characters to form a spell-bounding and deeply moving account of immigrant experience and Portugal’s troubled history.
We are delighted to be joined by director Pedro Costa for a ScreenTalk after the film, hosted by Ian Haydn Smith.
