19On September 19, 1931, the first film by Manoel de Oliveira, Labour on the Douro River, premiered when he was only 22 years old. In 2021 we celebrate the 90th anniversary of this first presentation and, as such, the 90th anniversary of the beginning of the most acclaimed Portuguese filmmaker’s career. As a celebration, the band Sensible Soccers has prepared a film-concert where they will present a new score for Labour on the Douro River and The Painter and the City (1956), to be held on September 19, at the Serralves Museum Auditorium.

 

On September 18, at Casa do Cinema, it will be presented a film programme dedicated the 1930s avant-garde cinema, showing two films that inspired Manoel de Oliveira to become a director and that shaped his understanding of cinema as an art form.
