Before the holidays, Porto/Post/Doc returns with a film series in July, where it wil present a screening of short films with the Portuguese films awarded at Curtas Vila do Conde, and another session with the documentary Oleg y las raras artes.
In the first screening, we make a selection of very recent Portuguese short films, all of them awarded at Curtas Vila do Conde: Where do you stand now, João Pedro Rodrigues?, by João Pedro Rodrigues, The Artificial Humors by Gabriel Abrantes and Barbs Wastelands by Marta Mateus. The short film by João Pedro Rodrigues is a kind of self-portrait, going through his films, in a comission from the Center Pompidou; it won the prize of best film of the Portuguese competition. The short film by Abrantes is a fun comedy that tells the passion between a girl and a robot; it won the prize of best director of the Portuguese competition. Finally, the short film by Marta Mateus is an austere portrait of an Alentejo community; it was the great winner of Curtas Vila do Conde, with the Grand Prize of the festival.
On the 20th, we screen Oleg y Las Raras Artes, by Andrés Duque. The film was present in Porto/Post/Doc 2016 and is now projected, again, within the scope of the partnership with the program 4.doc promoted by DocLisboa. The documentary deals with the portrait of the Russian pianist and composer Oleg Nikolayevich Karavaichu.
In 2017, we will continue to propose cinema cycles, at the monthly rate, providing hypotheses for the discovery of less known cinematographies or films that deserve new visibility. These cycles, which will have a thematic coherence, will extend the activity of Porto/Post/Doc, the festival that takes place at the end of November.
