    Pedro Maia, Rita Lino e Paulo Furtado

    “‘How To Become Nothing’ is a fake diary, in photography, Super 8 films, music and texts, the result of three visions about the journey of a man who, rather than disappear, seeks to come to nothing, to become nothing. “How To Become Nothing” brings together the musician The Legendary Tigerman, the photographer Rita Lino and the film-maker Pedro Maia on a road trip through the Californian desert. A road-movie, a false diary shoot in Super 8 and photography, with texts from Paulo Furtado, the joining of three visions on a man’s voyage that, more than just disappear, he aims to be nothing, to become nothing.

    “O Cinema, Manoel de Oliveira e Eu” (Cinema, Manoel de Oliveira and Me), João Botelho
    2016, Documentary, Fiction, Portugal, Portugal, 81′

    An old photograph taken 36 years ago. His hand rests on my shoulder. A blessing, a gift.Then a history of over four decades of friendship, admiration and apprenticeship. A journey into Oliveira’s cinema, his method, his way of filming and his extraordinary cinematographic inventions. He lived for over a century, over a century of cinema, cinema in its entirety. His turns of fortune and his knowledge, my own turns of fortune. For him, and for me now, documentary and fiction films go hand in hand; it is all about cinema. So I had the audacity to film a magnificent story that Manoel loved but never filmed, one that he left behind as if his hand and eyes were close to God, or among the gods, and he was steering me so that even now he can continue to film through me.

    Beyond the Mountains (O Homem de Trás-os-Montes), Miguel Moraes Cabral
    Fiction, 2017, 29′
