Letters from War Réalisé par Ivo M. Ferreira
The Jury was not completely up to the Competition’s challenge, ignoring two of its most outstanding entries, Mānī Haghighi’s A Dragon Arrives! and Ivo Ferreira’s Letters From War.

Wang and Midi Z’s visual style couldn’t be more different than the overstated lushness of Letters from War. In this film, the noirish low-key lighting casts stark shadows over the colonizers’ cause.

It’s a remarkably beautiful film, sometimes suggestive of what Terrence Malick did with nature and the field of combat in The Thin Red Line, but this isn’t a film—despite arguments I’ve heard here—that either aestheticizes war or preserves colonial conflict in aspic as an element of a distant past. The beauty of Letters, and of the letters themselves, are part and parcel of the intense presentness with which the film imbues Antunes’s experience.
