Portugal | 2012 | Pedro Costa, Victor Erice, Aki Kaurismäki, Manoel de Oliveira
Portugal, 2012, Four of Europe's greatest filmmakers contribute segments to this portmanteau film about the northern Portuguese city of Guimarães, 2012 European Cultural Capital. Aki Kaurismäki tells a typically droll tale of a sad sack cafe owner. Pedro Costa revisits Portugal's colonial past. Victor Erice looks at the city's age-old but fast-vanishing textile industry. And Manoel de Oliveira (now 105 and still directing movies!) focuses on a group of picture-taking tourists.
