Four Portuguese films, including ‘Diários de Otsoga‘ and ‘Amor de Perdição’, are part of the Ghent International Film Festival in October, the largest in the panorama of festivals in Belgium.
The programming for the 48th edition contains, in the official selection of feature films, the film ‘Diários de Otsoga’, which Maureen Fazendeiro and Miguel Gomes shot in the summer of 2020, in full confinement because of covid-19.
This will be a return of Miguel Gomes to a festival that awarded him the prize for best film in 2012 for “Tabu”.
In Ghent, this year there will also be ‘A Távola de Rocha‘, a documentary by Samuel Barbosa about the director Paulo Rocha, to whom he was assistant, and the experimental work ‘Luz, Clario, Fulgor – Augúrios for a Non-Hierarchical and Happy Framework‘, by the director and researcher Sílvia das Fadas (Sílvia Salgueiro).
In the short film competition there is ‘Nanu Tudor‘, a documentary by Moldovan director Olga Lucovnicova, co-produced by the Lusófona University, as part of the European Masters program DocNomads, and which this year won the Golden Bear in Berlin.
‘Amor de Perdição‘ (1979), film by director Manoel de Oliveira, from the so-called ‘tetralogy of frustrated loves’, based on the homonymous novel by Camilo Castelo Branco, will be screened at the Belgian festival by directors CW Winter and Aders Edstrom, whose work is in focus in Ghent.
The Ghent International Film Festival is scheduled from 12th to 23rd October.
