Simultaneously poetic and political, realistic and lyrical, ethnographic and expressive, the work of António Reis and Margarida Cordeiro has an absolutely singular place in the history of Portuguese cinema, raising various issues such as temporality, collective memory, landscape and territory. In Porto, Jaime (1974), Trás-os-Montes (1976), Ana (1985) and Rosa de Areia (1989) will be shown in a program that reaffirms the importance of his work in the context of a country under dictatorship and reflects upon the way in which their work would influence contemporary Portuguese cinema. The retrospective is only possible with the partnership with Cinemateca Portuguesa - Museu do Cinema.
Dedicated to the theme Fictions of the Real, the seminar Forum of the Real will also include a panel exclusively dedicated to the work of the duo of filmmakers. "Review Reis and Cordeiro". In this edition, the forum proposes a debate around the intersections between the fiction and documentary records. In parallel, Porto/Post/Doc will also host a workshop led by British researcher and director Laura Mulvey. With registration until the end of September, the three-day theoretical workshop (27, 28 and 29 November) will focus on gender issues in cinema, that have been studied by Mulvey for many years ago.
