aumoji's film season continues with a director suggestion from selected artist Cole Denyer. Cole has chosen Portugeuese film director, Pedro Costa.
The second film screening in the 'Pedro Costa season' is Colossal Youth (2006).
After the Portuguese government demolishes his slum and relocates him to a housing project on the outskirts of Lisbon, 75-year-old Cape Verde immigrant Ventura wanders between his new and old homes, reconnecting with people from his past.
RSVP via Facebook is essential
Pedro Costa (*1958) graduated from Lisbon School of Theatre and Film. He's a winner of the France Culture Award (Foreign Cineaste of the Year) at 2002 Cannes Film Festival, and was also selected as part of 2006 Cannes Film Festival. The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw commented of Pedro Costa, calling him the "the Samuel Beckett of cinema". Many of Costa's films are known for being shot in a natural and low-key way in documentary format, or as 'docufictions'. They are often inhabited by the socially disadvantaged, and mainly set in Lisbon.
The film season continues on with:

In Vanda's Room (2000): Thursday 19th May 2016
In Vanda's Room will also be accompanied with a short discussion with Cole afterwards.
