Porto's 'House of Cinema' for Manoel de Oliveira to open

By TPN/Lusa, in World · 20-06-2019 13:00:00 · 10 Comments

The Casa do Cinema Manoel de Oliveira, a new institution dedicated to the life and work of the Porto-born film-maker, is to be inaugurated at the city's Fundação Serralves on 24 June, at 6.30pm

The date of the inauguration of this 'House of Cinema' is St John's Day, meaning that the ceremony will coincide with city-wide festivities to mark locals' favourite saint.

The Serralves had in January announced that the Cada do Cinema – which was built to a design by renowned Porto architect Álvaro Siza Vieira - would open its doors to the public in the first half of the year, with António Preto as its director.

According to the programme distributed at the time, it is to open with two inaugural exhibitions, one of them permanent, and have a regular programme of films and events on the director’s work.

De Oliveira, whose works included ‘Aniki Bobo’ and ‘O Gebo e a Sombra’, died on 2 April of 2015, at the age of 106. In his later years he was the world’s oldest active film-maker, and was awarded prizes that included a second Career Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, in 2004 (following one in 1985), and an Honorary Golden Palm at Cannes, in 2008.
