Reframing Portuguese Cinema in the 21st Century
Two decades after the beginning of the 21st century, Portuguese cinema presents itself as a cinema of great international appeal, with regular activity, close to a small industry of a country of reduced socio-economical dimensions. In recent years, always with the economic fluctuations of a world market in cycles and contra cycles, Portuguese cinema has consolidated some tendencies at the level of modes of production and its aesthetic and artistic aspects.
In the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Portuguese Short Film Agency, "Reframing Portuguese Cinema in the 21st Century" is a work that analyses trends, transformations and filmmakers in Portuguese cinema of the last two decades.
Directors surveyed include Carlos Conceição, Filipa César, Gabriel Abrantes, João Pedro Rodriques e João Guerra da Mata, João Salaviza, Leonor Noivo, Pedro Costa, Regina Pessoa, Salomé Lamas, Sandro Aguilar, Susana Sousa Dias, Teresa Villaverde, amongst others.
