João Pedro Rodrigues e João Rui Guerra da Mata

JOÃO PEDRO RODRIGUES & JOÃO RUI GUERRA DA MATA

 

In 2016, Curtas Vila do Conde once again extended its programming to Solar - Cinematic Art Gallery with the first exhibition of João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata in Portugal.

In “From the Pearl River to the Ave”, the filmmakers ventured into a cross-sectional project, even more related to the fine arts. Composed of installations designed exclusively for Solar space, in conjunction with its sinuous and recondite configuration, this exhibition proposed a playful journey through the universe of the two filmmakers, seeking to establish new dialogues with the films and their production processes, in a very different approach of what usually happens in the movie theatre.

 

In addition to the exhibition and at the invitation of Curtas Vila do Conde, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata presented a mysterious and historic carte blanche. The three sessions were part of a selection of short films chosen by the duo of filmmakers such as Buster Keaton, Charles Chaplin, Jacques Tati, Alan Schneider, Jean Genet, Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger, Jacques Demy and Jean-Luc Godard, among others.
