Nº 6 THE POETRY OF THE EARTH. PORTUGUESE CINEMA: RITE OF SPRING
Editorial. The poetry of the earth
ABSTRACTBased on his experience as both an actor and spectator in Manuel de Oliviera’s films, the author reflects about the relation of the filmmaker with theatre, and his way of working the space, the texts, the actors and time. From Acto da Primavera, conceived as a truly poetic art, this essay visits Oliveira’s filmography to show the way in which his films are based in documentary to reach the actor, and how artifice and representation is constructed from there as the best way of capturing the truth of a mysterious reality: the human life.
Deadline for submissions: [EXTENDED] January 30th, 2020.
