Notes on a Certain Trend in Portuguese Cinema
The present essay examines how contemporary Portuguese cinema critically dialogues with the historical representations upon which mythical images of Portugal have been founded. Analyzing films by Manoel de Oliveira, Pedro Costa, and Miguel Gomes, the essay highlights how these filmmakers problematize, within a postcolonial perspective, the political sense of understanding modernity as a crisis of identity.
