Still Lives: The Films of Pedro Costa

Celebrated at international film festivals and in such publications asArtforum,Film Comment, andCahiers du Cinéma, 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.
