‘Vitalina Varela’ aired in February by New York’s MoMA

Among the choices, showing on February 16, is ‘Vitalina Varela’, Pedro Costa’s award-winning film, which earlier this month was voted the fourth-best foreign language of the year by the United States National Society of Film Critics.

Bacurau“, by Kleber Mendonça Filho, “Nomadland“, Chloé Zhao, the series of five feature films by Steve McQueen, brought together under the title “Small Ax“, and “Another Round“, by Thomas Vinterberg, are other films chosen by the New York museum.

Portuguese candidate for the Oscar nomination for Best International Film, ‘Vitalina Varela‘ had its world premiere in August 2019 at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, where he won the main awards: Golden Leopard and Leopard for best female interpretation.

Since then, it has been shown and received several awards at several international film festivals, in addition to appearing on multiple lists of the best of the year.

The specialized publication Variety placed him, 19th days ago, in the list of possible candidates for the Oscar for Best International Film; on Monday, Indiewire awarded him 15th place.

Pedro Costa met Vitalina Varela when he was playing “Cavalo Dinheiro”, ending up including part of his story in the narrative, giving him a leading role in the next film.

The narrative focuses on a Cape Verdean woman who arrives in Portugal three days after her husband’s death, after having been waiting for a plane ticket for 25 years.
