Still Lives: The Films of Pedro Costa

Celebrated at international film festivals and in such publications as<i>Artforum</i>,<i>Film Comment</i>, and<i>Cahiers du Cinéma</i>, Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa is virtually unknown to American audiences. He is mainly identified with his films depicting the lives of poor migrants in the slums of Lisbon: intimate portraits marked by precise editing and beautiful imagery. Although it may not be immediately apparent on first exposure to his rigorous filmmaking, Costa displays a deep affinity for classical filmmakers as disparate as John Ford, Robert Bresson, Charlie Chaplin, and Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet.
