  4. Cinema Português: Anos Gulbenkian / Portuguese Cinema: Gulbenkian Years's icon

    Cinema Português: Anos Gulbenkian / Portuguese Cinema: Gulbenkian Years

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Films financed by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation between 1970-1994. In the 1960s, Portugal was living under a long-standing dictatorship with a very present censorship. Aside from that, audiences cared too little about most creative cinematic works to make the business profitable. Therefore, the country had a well-prepared, acknowledged and inventive workforce in a great need of artistic freedom, but virtually no place for experimental or creative cinema. Then, from 1970 (and ending only in 1994, two decades after the old regime downfall) Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation answered filmmakers' requests. It started directing funds to the production of portuguese films, following its rich history of support in the plastic arts, theater, music and other fields. In a few years, the works produced under Gulbenkian's financial and institutional aid were strongly acclaimed in both national and foreign press, and in specialized cinema circuits and festivals, mostly in Italy and France. Without Gulbenkian's support, portuguese 'cinema novo' wouldn't have been anything like it was. This list contains all films produced by Gulbenkian's Portuguese Cinema Center (CPC) during those years that are on IMDB. Among the supported directors, we can find João César Monteiro, Fernando Lopes, António Reis & Margarida Cordeiro, Pedro Costa and the then already senior Manoel de Oliveira.

  12. João Bénard da Costa's "The Films of my Life"'s icon

    João Bénard da Costa's "The Films of my Life"

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. This list is a compilation of the 2 volumes João Bénard da Costa penned under the name "Os Filmes da Minha Vida", here translated to "The Films of my Life". The first volume is comprised of 52 chronicles, 26 regarding his life and 26 regarding the movies. There is also a preface and a postface, which bring the total to 54. They both act as "bridges" between the two pars of the book, and since the first one revolves around Hitchcock's "Spellbound", that movie was also included on the list. The chronicles for these movies were published in "O Independente" between 27/05/1988 and 23/06/1989. The second volume is comprised of 50 chronicles on the films of his life, plus a preface and a postface. The first five films are those which Bénard da Costa calls "the most beautiful of films", an expression he lifts from Godard's "Berganorama", published on the 85th number of the Cahiers du Cinéma. Those films are the ones Godard mentions in the article ("Tabu", "Viaggio in Italia", "La Carozza d'Oro" and "Sommarlek") plus one: "Vivre sa Vie", by Godard himself. Afterwards, he chooses five films to represent each decade between the 1910s and the 1990s. The chronicles for these movies were published in "O Independente" between 26/01/1996 and 23/05/1997.
