In Memory of Manoel de Oliveira

Born in 1908, today it is one year ago that the Portugese film director Manoel de Oliveira passed away. 

During the ‘O acto da primavera’ program in CINEMATEK, some films by de Oliveira will be screened. This Monday you will be able to see his film from 1981, Francisca. Also read the beautiful short text in which Paulo Rocha reminisces about the Manoel de Oliveira of the 1960s.
