Manoel de Oliveira: The House
Taking as its starting point Manoel de Oliveira's posthumous film, Visita or Memórias e Confessões, this publication offers a broader questioning about the concept of the house in the filmmaker's work.
Nobly illustrated with archival material and images from her films, the publication includes texts by Regina Guimarães, Nuno Grande, Mathias Lavin and António Preto, along with an unprecedented conversation between Oliveira and the architect Álvaro Siza.
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, born in Porto, was the director with the longest career in the history of cinema.
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.
Known as "the Mestre", Manoel de Oliveira was internationally recognized by the most important film festivals in the world as an exponent of cinematographic art and also for his longevity, receiving the title of "oldest active director", as he continued to film up to 106 years.
