António Borges Correia

Born in 1966. After a brief period on Radio and the Press, starts his studies on Cinema at the Theater and Cinema Superior School in 1989, choosing the filmmaking area. In 1992 he works as the second Director's Assistant on the film of Manoel de Oliveira “A Caixa" and concludes one of the final exercises of his course. In 1998 he gets a subsidy from ICA for his first short film “Flying Away” (Golpe de Asa) which gets to Locarno, Clermont-Ferrand and Vila do Conde. He continues on short films for a long period until he finally centers on a very personal and deep concept of doing documentaries to the point of letting himself be invaded by fiction. Then comes “Endgame” (O Lar) thought of twenty years earlier and concluded in 2007. Its premiere is in Paris, at Pompidou Centre (Cinéma du Réel) and it goes to some international cinema festivals. After that, a project on war veterans is carried out and in 2010 he produces and directs “Delivery” (Parto) with characters performing their own roles and where he risks to the limit the fusion between documentary and fiction (Premiere at DocLisboa and it is chosen to the BAFICI in Buenos Aires and for the CineB in Chile). He continues to explore this manner during the following year with “Sign” (Gesto), a film about a young deaf, who aims to be a film director. It is still touring in the country as well as in festivals abroad.
