Luminary Pedro Costa’s unique, collaborative style of portraiture reaches a magnificent peak in Vitalina Varela. Amongst haunting chiaroscuro compositions, her real-life stories of love, migration, and deceit take the form of bewitching incantations—and earned her the Best Actress award in Locarno!

  1. An absolute masterpiece by one of the best filmmakers working today. Please note that the struggling Film at Lincoln Center is doing online screenings of this film, so if you can afford to do so, please support them with renting the film before DL’ing! They’ve recent had to indefinitely cease both print and digital production of their invaluable cinematic journal, Film Comment, due to financial issues, so anything you can do to help support them and get them back on their feet during this difficult time would be crucial. Thank you!
