“[About Portuguese cinema] There are always some odd minorities that begin to discover the poor Portuguese people.”

    THE GREEN YEARS

    Paulo Rocha Portugal, 1963

    Paulo Rocha’s The Green Years is one of the great Portuguese debuts. Now magnificently restored, this breathtakingly modern, Lisbon-set tale of urban acceleration and romantic turmoil takes the stylistic freshness of the contemporaneous French New Wave and cloaks it with an anguished melancholia.

    CHANGE OF LIFE

    Paulo Rocha Portugal, 1966

    Deeply embedded in the fog-hewn landscapes of its coastal fishing village, this second feature from Portuguese modernist Paulo Rocha was restored under the supervision of Pedro Costa. A mournful, delicately rendered tale of wounded love, Change of Life is a masterpiece of bruised, melancholy beauty.
