BLOG Farewell, Master!

We considered him immortal. A filmmaker has died with 106 years old and with a work that spans almost the entire history of the twentieth century. A filmmaker with an oeuvre extended along 80 years, between “Labor on the Douro River” (1929-1931), his first film, and “The Old Man of Belém” (2014), his closing work. Manoel de Oliveira has died! The great Portuguese filmmaker is one of the most respected directors in cinema’s history and also a dear friend of Curtas Vila do Conde.
