Criterion utgir Pedro Costa-filmer

Criterion Collection skal utgi flere filmer av den portugisiske regissøren Pedro Costa. «Criterion will release a box set of Costa’s Fontainhas Trilogy—Ossos, In Vanda’s Room, and Colossal Youth—also including the shorts Tarrafal and The Rabbit Hunters, in early 2010.»

Du har kanskje ikke hørt om Pedro Costa? Da anbefaler jeg at du leser intervjuet Sight & Sound har gjort med regissøren. Bladet skriver at regissøren vakte stor oppmerksomhet med såkalte Fontainhas-trilogien .»Costa’s discovery of Fontainhas, a ghetto neighbourhood on the outskirts of Lisbon that’s home to impoverished immigrants from Portugal’s former colony the Cape Verde Islands, led to his increasing disillusionment with industrial film-making and his switch to small-scale digital work. Costa’s subsequent films made with non-professional actors essentially playing versions of their own often bleak lives were underpinned by his striving for a truly collaborative and more rigorous film-making practice – ‘a cinema made with justice’, as he styles it, drawing for its inspiration on the likes of John Ford, Chaplin, Ozu and Straub-Huillet. (Straub, in particular, he calls his «master».)» The Guardians filmkritiker Peter Bradshaw mener at Costa er “Samuel Beckett of world cinema«.

Nå viser også Tate Modern flere av Costas filmer. Tate Modern beskriver regissøren på følgende måte: «Acclaimed Portugese filmmaker Pedro Costa’s work is marked by extraordinary intimacy and trancelike stillness. His films present the lives of Lisbon’s disenfranchised migrants with unflinching honesty and dignity.»
