Steel Mask versus Blue Abyss

Máscara de Aço Contra Abismo Azul

Directed by Paulo Rocha
Portugal, 1989


Surprising collage on Portuguese Modernism, focusing on Amadeo de Sousa-Cardoso, the “Orfeu” years & the Futuristic manifesto. A Gulbenkian exhibit fusing itself with quelled oneirism. Singular & fascinating film about Painting: colours & metals, as nostalgic as anarchistic, as towering as insecure.
