Film Fest Gent - Director's Talk: Pedro Costa
Archived: Director's Talk: Pedro Costa

duration: 120 minutes

Every cinephile recognises the painterly chiaroscuro photography and ghostly atmosphere of Pedro Costa's films. The Portuguese director put himself on the map with the Fontainhas Trilogy, about an impoverished Lisbon neighbourhood populated by Cape Verdean immigrants. Costa's shadowy and dreamlike portraits of marginalised people defy genres and styles. This Director's Talk is a unique, extensive conversation with one of the most distinctive voices in cinema, about his new film Vitalina Varela, about a cinema of shadows and the art of dissent.
