The short film "A Noite", by Regina Pessoa, will be shown at the Louvre Museum in Paris under the Fantasmagories cycle. The film will be screened in two sessions, on October 13 and 31, along with other short films.
Directed in 1999 and produced by Abi Feíjó, "A Noite" is Regina Pessoa's first animated short film, in which she uses engraving techniques to construct a narrative about the absence of communication between a mother and a daughter and the place of the night as darkness and loneliness.
Regina Pessoa was born in Coimbra in 1969 and graduated in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto in 1998. In 2005, she made her second film "História Trágica com Final Feliz", also in print. This animation has become one of the most awarded Portuguese short films ever with almost five dozen international awards and mentions, among which the City Prize of Espinho and Alves Costa at CINANIMA (2005, Portugal), the Grand Prix at the Festival of Annecy (2006, France), the CNC Prix à la Qualité (2006, France), and the Grand Prix at SICAF (2006, South Korea).
