Pedro Costa (Lisbon, Portugal, 1959)
Pedro Costa’s films radically focus on life beyond the margins of society. Within a carefully chosen mise en scène and stark lighting he reveals a so-called “Fourth World,” where isolation and hopelessness are the only bridge between the inhabitants. Nonetheless they allow the dim light of tragedy to turn into radiance when it comes to the dignity and beauty of Costa’s characters.
