Biography
He was born in Lisbon in 1972. He studied at the Lisbon Film and Theater School and worked as a film critic for the Portuguese press between 1996 and 2000. He directed several short films awarded in festivals such as Oberhausen, Belfort and Vila do Conde, and screened at Locarno, Rotterdam, Buenos Aires and Vienna. The Face You Deserve (2004) was his first feature film. In 2008, he presented his film, Our Beloved Month of August, at the Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Festival, which was subsequently selected in more than forty international festivals where he won over a dozen prizes.

Special Screenings

Tabu / Miguel Gomes

A temperamental old woman, her Cape Verdean maid and a neighbor devoted to social causes live on the same floor of a Lisbon apartment building. When the old lady dies, the other two learn of an episode from her past: a tale of love and crime set in an Africa straight out of the world of adventure films.
