Portugal Film organizes once again a cinema showcase in Macao

On June 30th, and July 1st and 2nd, as part of celebrations of the month of Portugal, Camões and the Portuguese Communities in Macao and Hong Kong, Cinematheque Passion in Macau shows a display of Portuguese cinema with a total of nine films.

The three-day program kicks off with Cinema, Manoel de Oliveira and Me, a feature film by João Botelho, a tribute to a master which premiered in 2016 at IndieLisboa and Locarno.

On Saturday, July 1st, takes place the first short programme that includes the award-winning Macabre by Jerónimo Rocha and João Miguel Real, Campo de Víboras by Cristèle Alves Meira, and Pedro by André Santos and Marco Leão, which recently won the award for best queer short film at the Provincetown International Film Festival. Also on the same day, the evening program is reserved for Sérgio Tréfaut's fiction / essay feature Treblinka, which won the jury prize for best Portuguese feature film at the IndieLisboa festival in 2016.

On Sunday, July 2nd, the day begins with a second short film program comprised of Ascension by Pedro Peralta, Swallows by Sofia Bost and The Hunchback by Gabriel Abrantes and Ben Rivers, the latter being the winner of the best Portuguese short film award at IndieLisboa in 2016.

The showcase ends at night with the presentation of I Was in Lisbon and Remembered You, by José Barahona, an adaptation of the homonymous novel by the Brazilian Luiz Ruffato.
