The Jester


José Álvaro Morais Portugal, 1987


José Álvaro Morais theatrically transforms Alexandre Herculano’s 1843 novel before our eyes in his Golden Leopard-winning first feature. Set in the abandoned Lisboa Filmes film studio, The Jester imaginatively ruminates on national identity, engaging with entire centuries of Portuguese history.
