Product description

One of the most important artists on the international film scene today, Portuguese director Pedro Costa has been steadily building an impressive body of work since the late eighties. And these are the three films that put him on the map: spare, painterly portraits of battered, largely immigrant lives in the slums of Fontainhas, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon. Hypnotic, controlled works, OSSOS, IN VANDA'S ROOM, and COLOSSAL YOUTH confirm Costa as a provocative new cinematic poet, one who locates beauty in the most unlikely of places.
