Cinema at the Museum - Portraits of Amazing Lives III

Free admission

A documentary on the life of poet Alexandre O’Neill, his poems and life stories, spoken and told by Antonio Tabucchi, Hellmut Wohl, Gérard Castello‐Lopes, João Botelho and Afonso O’Neill, among others.
Fernando Lopes – Portugal/2004

Between fiction and reality, four films transport us through a multitude of sounds and images to the heart of the life and work of exceptional Portuguese creators, artists and writers, as seen by sentimental, almost indiscreet cameras, pointed directly at the eyes, even intrusively. These documentaries are another form of portraiture. They amalgamate the body, the modus vivendi and the creative process in one, unfiltered, sometimes naked. So fragile and sublime in complicity that they leave us questioning the relationship between director and creator. 

 

A documentary on the life of poet Alexandre O’Neill, his poems and life stories, spoken and told by Antonio Tabucchi, Hellmut Wohl, Gérard Castello‐Lopes, João Botelho and Afonso O’Neill, among others.
This is a personal tribute, not a biography, and certainly not a critical appraisal of Alexadre O’Neill’s poetry. That has all been done and redone.  It deals, above all, with the creative, sentimental and emotional relationships of one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. 

Alexandre O’Neill – Tomai lá do O’Neill (Alexandre O’Neill – Here’s O’Neill) (52 mins.)

Fernando Lopes – Portuga, 2004
