JOSÉ VIEIRA: conversation with the filmmaker of the Portuguese exodus

Closing  of the retrospective dedicated to José Vieira with a conversation on his work, after the screening of Le Drôle de Mai (Chronique des Années de Boue) and of his most recent film, L'ile des Absents.

"I try to make films about what Hegel calls the people without history, those who don't come up in school manuals. At the heart of my films' narrative are people who talk of the life they had to lead, of the wounds inflicted by the violent course of History. With my camera, I try to leash out memories to reveal the story": words of José Vieira that sum up his modus operandi, which will most certainly be discussed in the conversation with José António Cunha and Carlos Campos.
