Cruzeiros Seixas - As cartas do rei Artur (85 min.), Cláudia Rita Oliveira - Portugal, 2015
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.
Cruzeiro Seixas - As Cartas do rei Artur (85 min.)
Cláudia Rita Oliveira - Portugal, 2015
Cruzeiro Seixas lives in a maze where every path leads to Mário Cesariny. Subdued by that obsessive love and hate relationship, Cruzeiro Seixos did not fully live, but left proofs of that non-existence: 95 years of paintings and poetry that await full recognition alongside other surrealist masters.
The film exhibition will be followed by a conversation with the director.
