As part of the Research Seminar on ‘Fantasy vs. Reality in Contemporary Portuguese Cinema’, QMUL will be screening the documentary film Ruinas/Ruins (Manuel Mozos, Portugal, 2009; with English subtitles).
Manuel Mozos was born in Lisbon in 1959 and has been making films since the 1980s. A graduate from the National School of Theatre and Drama, he has worked as an editor and as an actor in films by directors such as Miguel Gomes. A retrospective of his work was presented in the 2012 edition of the Viennale (Vienna International Film Festival). Ruins is his 10th film, “a wonderful entwinement of image and language about the decay and disappearance of everyday architecture in his home country”, as described by the Austrian initiative.
We are delighted to announce the director will be in London to introduce his film. After the screening, Manuel Mozos will be joined by Kieron Corless (Sight and Sound), who will lead a Q&A session.
