Box 3 Vol. Manoel de Oliveira
The first volume is followed by another two and in each of them is presented a part of the exhibition dedicated to the film work of master Oliveira, as well as unpublished texts by several Portuguese and foreign authors: thinkers, critics and essayists, actors and filmmakers, that raise new points of view for the knowledge and discussion of the filmmaker's work.
The second volume continues with testimonies by Jean-Michel Frodon and Serge Toubiana, exemplifying how the French critical context celebrated Oliveira's cinema, and presents a fundamental text (reprinted) by Jonathan Rosenbaum on the film Amor de Perdição and provides the second part from João Bénard da Costa's conversation that began in the previous volume about Oliveira's work.
The third volume of the catalog dedicated to the filmmaker's work includes unpublished texts by António Preto and Luís Miguel Cintra and the last part of the conversation between João Fernandes and João Bénard da Costa. Extensively illustrated with photograms, scene and shooting photographs including his most recent films, the book raises new points of view for the knowledge and discussion of Oliveira's work.
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.
