Cinema Falado and the diversity of a language

by Porto/Post/Doc / 17 11 2019

Since its first edition, Porto/Post/Doc has focused on showing contemporary Portuguese films, promoting and valuing Portuguese cinema or, let's say, Portuguese-speaking cinema.

This non-competitive section of the festival aims, on the one hand, to be a showcase of recent Portuguese-language productions, and, on the other hand, to spread the multiple culture of contemporary Lusophone communities, bringing together various film formats, from short to feature films, all of it in the international context of the festival. Between Galicia and Figueira das Naus, in an edition dedicated to questioning identities, Cinema Falado puts the peripheries at the center, problematizing the limits of its own language.

The section will be featured on the opening day with Pedro Filipe Marques's "Viveiro", Vasco Saltão's "Rare Bird", Leonor Noivo's "Renard", and "Sério Fernandes - The Master of Oporto School", by Rui Garrido. All sessions will be attended by the directors. The program continues during the week with the screening of Renata Sancho's "Panorama - In the Port of Leixões", Ana Marta Dias's "The Unexposed", Maureen Fazendeiro's "Black Sun" and "A Table for One" by Carlos Lobo. On Thursday, November 28, Pedro Costa's work will be in focus, with the screening of "Sacavém" by Júlio Alves, documentary about Costa's films, and "Vitalina Varela", by Pedro Costa himself. In this context, "Outside The Oranges Are Blooming" (project that won Arché Porto 2017), by Nevena Desivojevic, and "Long Night", by Eloy Enciso, will also be screened.

The festival takes place between November 23rd and December 1st, in several venues of the city (Teatro Municipal do Porto - Rivoli, Cinema Passos Manuel and Planetário do Porto).

The 2019 edition of Porto/Post/Doc has the support of Câmara Municipal do Porto, Instituto do Cinema e Audiovisual (ICA) - Ministério da Cultura, CVRVV - Vinho Verde and several other partners.
