“The most glorious achievement of Raúl Ruiz's prodigious career and one of the first cinematic masterpieces of this century.”—Film Comment

In August the film world was saddened by the loss of prolific Chilean-born filmmaker Raúl Ruiz, who left us with 113 films from his singular 48-year career. Evoking the intertwined narratives of Victor Hugo or Charles Dickens, Mysteries of Lisbon follows a child born out of an ill-fated aristocratic romance who yearns to learn the truth about his parentage. Based on a 19th-century novel by Portuguese writer Camilo Castelo Branco, Ruiz’s last film unfolds over three decades and throughout four European countries. (257 mins., video)
