Abstract

At 104, the Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira is the oldest living filmmaker still actively working within the industry and, having directed films since 1927, the filmmaker with the longest career. His films, from his first uncompleted project on WWI to his late work that includes The Strange Case of Angelica (O Estranho Caso de Angélica, 2010), share the theme of the importance of humanity, faith, and perseverance. Now in his second century, Oliveira continues to create his meditative films that both embrace contemporary digital technologies and authentically recall the past.
