The short film "Como Fernando Pessoa Salvou Portugal", by Eugène Green, will premiere on October 11 at Cinema Ideal, in Lisbon. The film, which has already been shown at Curtas Vila do Conde and Locarno, will be screened along with the feature film "9 Fingers" by F. J. Ossang, director who was in focus at the 25th edition of Curtas festival.
The short film, starring Carlota Cotta, Manuel Mozos, Diogo Dória, Alexandro Pierroni Calado, Ricardo Gross, Mia Tomé and Eugene Green himself, is a well-humored journey to the universe of Fernando Pessoa. The narrative is based on one of the most famous episodes in the publicist career of the heteronym Álvaro de Campos, author of the famous slogan "First Stranger, then Entrusted", created in 1927 for Coca-Cola to enter Portuguese territory. The drink would be banned in Portugal and would only be commercialized 50 years after that episode.
Eugène Green was born in the United States of America in 1947, but obtained French nationality in 1976. His long "Le points des arts" (2004), "A Religiosa Portuguesa" (2009), "La Sapienza" all displayed in Locarno.
"Como Fernando Pessoa Salvou Portugal", by Eugène Green, is promoted and distributed by Agência da Curta Metragem.
