Manoel de Oliveira, Vol. 2
Edited by João Fernandes and António Preto, the catalog concludes the journey through Oliveira's work, integrating his most recent production.
In addition to the introductory text, which proposes a review of film production over the last forty years, the publication also includes an essay by Luís Miguel Cintra on the relationship between Manoel de Oliveira's cinema and theater and the reprint of a text originally published in 1933 , but which maintains all its actuality, where the director thinks of the iron fist between cinema and capitalism.
The catalog is completed by the conclusion of the conversation between João Fernandes and João Bénard da Costa about Oliveira's work and an exhaustive listing of his filmography.
In 2019, the Serralves Foundation inaugurated the Casa do Cinema Manoel de Oliveira, as a new center of reference in the field of cinema and moving images, bringing together the filmmaker's extraordinary documentary nuclei.
Manoel Cândido Pinto de Oliveira was born on December 11, 1908, in Porto. He was the director with the longest career in the history of cinema, in a total of 84 years between his debut as a director (with Douro, Faina Fluvial, in 1931) and his last film (Um Século de Energia, in 2015).
With a filmography that includes more than fifty titles, he was the only filmmaker to move from silent cinema to sound cinema, from black and white to color and from nitrate film to digital support. Having continued to film until the age of 106, Manoel de Oliveira received wide critical recognition, with a work that was awarded at the most important film festivals in the world.
