    THE GREEN YEARS

    Paulo Rocha Portugal, 1963

    Paulo Rocha’s The Green Years is one of the great Portuguese debuts. Now magnificently restored, this breathtakingly modern, Lisbon-set tale of urban acceleration and romantic turmoil takes the stylistic freshness of the contemporaneous French New Wave and cloaks it with an anguished melancholia.

    THE STRANGE CASE OF ANGELICA

    Manoel de Oliveira Portugal, 2010

    One of the last films in the legendary Manoel de Oliveira’s erudite and richly rewarding filmography is a haunted love story very close to his heart. Written in the Portuguese director’s youth but directed in old age, the film combines romance and fear, photography and truth, and life and death.

    CHANGE OF LIFE

    Paulo Rocha Portugal, 1966

    Deeply embedded in the fog-hewn landscapes of its coastal fishing village, this second feature from Portuguese modernist Paulo Rocha was restored under the supervision of Pedro Costa. A mournful, delicately rendered tale of wounded love, Change of Life is a masterpiece of bruised, melancholy beauty.

    THE JESTER

    José Álvaro Morais Portugal, 1987

    José Álvaro Morais theatrically transforms Alexandre Herculano’s 1843 novel before our eyes in his Golden Leopard-winning first feature. Set in the abandoned Lisboa Filmes film studio, The Jester imaginatively ruminates on national identity, engaging with entire centuries of Portuguese history.
