João Canijo in the University of Manchester

Last 15 November, the documentary Fantasia Lusitana (Lusitan Fantasy), by the director João Canijo, was projected in the University of Manchester. It was an initiative by Doctor David Bailey, responsible for the Sophia de Mello Breyner cathedra, financed by the Camões Institute. 

 

The audience, which was composed of around thirty people, mainly students and teachers, essentially debated with the director the effects of the dictatorial regime in the Portuguese population, the relationship between the Portugal of the past with the present one and even the research of the pictures which served as a basis for the documentary.
