Special Mention to "The Last Time I Saw Macau"
2012/08/13

The Last Time I Saw Macau by João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata, the opening session film of doclisboa'12, recieved a Special Mention of the Jury of 65th Locarno Film Festival.

 

The festival's juri explains on the website of the festival why the film has recieved a special mention: "due to her powerful presence through absence which resonated for the Jury as representing the immense courage of Portuguese cinema in times when the failures of government and social systems threaten the cinematic arts worldwide."

 

Doclisboa'12 opens with "The Last Time I Saw Macau" by João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata and closes with "Caesar Must Die (Cesare Deve Morire)" by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani
2012/08/10

The Last Time I saw Macau by João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata, will be the opening film of the 10th Doclisboa.

This film is built on a contaminated level between João Rui Guerra da Mata’s childhood memories and fantasies and the documental research of the traces of a presence and of the dreamed territory of Macau. The film derives from the fiction of that search, through the characters that emerge from the noir universe of classical cinema and from their representations of the East. The Last Time I saw Macau appears as a meeting between the two directors’ who share their personal stories, their cinematographic memories, and the pursuit of a long dreamed place where they can come alive. The film had its World Premiere at the 65th edition of Locarno Festival


The closing session of Doclisboa’12 will feature Caesar Must Die (Cesare Deve Morire), by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, winner of the Golden Bear at the 62th Berlinale.


This film re-updates the play Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, staged with the inmates of Rebibbia high-security prison, in Rome. Shakespeare’s text thus reveals its great power and modernity through these men that reincarnate such contemporaneity and give us a profound reflection upon the power structure in such a place, and on rules and marginality determination.


According to the words of Paolo Taviani: "We hope that when the film is released to the general public that cinemagoers will say to themselves or even those around them ... that even a prisoner with a dreadful sentence, even a life sentence, is and remains a human being".


Caesar Must Die premieres on November 1st, and is distributed by Alambique Filmes.
