120 min

"In Vanda’s Room", discovered in 2000 at the Locarno Festival, sparked a veritable explosion when screened at Cinéma du reel in March 2001. The work accomplished by Pedro Costa with Vanda and her friends, as well as all the residents of Fontainhas neighbourhood, shook our convictions as spectators and changed the game, opening up the possibility of a Cinema beyond the frontiers of fiction and documentary.
