Portugal na imprensa estrangeira - "Pedro Costa: Portuguese director who fashioned Gil Scott-Heron's film prayer"
In the world of independent film, nothing comes cheaper than talk of going guerrilla, of doing it all outside the system on minimal budgets. But Pedro Costa is one film-maker who can genuinely claim to do things differently. The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw once described the Portuguese director as “the Samuel Beckett of cinema” – which certainly honours the austerity of Costa’s vision. But you could also call him cinema’s Vincent van Gogh – an artist who has turned his back on the worldlier ways of film to find an intense, troubling poetry in urban life at its most disadvantaged.
