Colossal Youth
Acclaimed Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa has been described by Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian as “the Samuel Beckett of world cinema.” His work has evolved over the years from conventional dramatic filmmaking into an experimental docudrama form, capturing the everyday lives of Lisbon’s migrants with honesty and dignity. His work is marked with a painterly stillness and intimacy, a trait not found in commercial cinema, and has been honored in major retrospectives around the world. Join us for a personal conversation with Pedro Costa on Thursday, October 6, 2011 at 3:00 pm. Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecture with Pedro Costa
