Almada, Um Nome de Guerra at Cinemateca

Almada Negreiros International Colloquium, Cinemateca Portuguesa – Museu do Cinema.

Reinterpretation of Ernesto de Sousa's mixed media, composed of simultaneous film and swiper-slide projections and by an elaborated sound component that combines Jorge Peixinho's music with Almada's voice. If the main material of ALMADA, UM NOME DE GUERRA is a film, Ernesto de Sousa would rather classify the project as a "non-film" that sprung from the interest of an artist for the work of another artist and the recognition of his key role in the renovation of the avant-garde. The first public presentation of ALMADA, UM NOME DE GUERRA would occur in 1979, followed by others in 1983 and 1984. A very rare work and a unique event in the context of Portuguese art, to be seen or re-seen at Cinemateca.
