Each film is a letter written by a thousand hands.

Companhia brings together works by Pedro Costa produced in collaboration with sculptor Rui Chafes, photographer Paulo Nozolino and film directors Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub and Chantal Akerman.

The exhibition also features works by artists who Pedro Costa repeatedly summons to his films, including poet Robert Desnos and photographer Jacob Riis, as well as paintings, drawings and films that have accompanied Costa’s life and work as a filmmaker. These include works by Pablo Picasso, Robert Bresson, António Reis, Walker Evans, João Queiroz, John Ford, Jeff Wall, Jacques Tourneur, Maria Capelo, Andy Rector, Jean-Luc Godard and Max Beckmann, among others.

Exhibition architecture conceived by the architect José Neves.

An exhibition organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, coordinated by Filipa Loureiro and Marta Almeida, with the collaboration of Nuno Crespo and Marta Mateus.
