“João Bénard da Costa was the head of Cinemateca Portuguesa for eighteen years. I walked down his memory lane and found his love for painting, for churches, for Proust and Musil, for Italy, films, Mozart, and for his friends. But what I really wanted was to depict the contradictory man of flesh and blood, a free man.” Manuel Mozos
PT: “João Bénard da Costa dirigiu a Cinemateca Portuguesa durante dezoito anos. Percorri a sua estrada da memória e descobri o seu amor pela pintura, igrejas, por Proust e Musil, pela Itália, pelo cinema, por Mozart e pelos seus amigos. Mas o que eu realmente queria era retratar o contraditório homem de carne e osso, o homem livre.” Manuel Mozos
