Pedro Costa at the Smithsonian (Freer Gallery) in D.C.

Just a quick note to remind everyone that the Portuguese Cinema program at the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery concludes this weekend with A Weekend with Pedro Costa, which includes the screening of O Sangue and Colossal Youth, both followed by discussions with Costa and Cinema Scope editor, Mark Peranson. Admission is free.

Is it certain that Costa will be there? I happened to be in DC last weekend and saw the Manoel de Oliveira films. The guy from the museum (whose name escapes me right now) who introduced the films said that they were less sure than they had been about Costa's presence, but that they still hoped it would happen. Perhaps it has been confirmed since Sunday.

Ack, I hadn't heard that...I actually hadn't been able to go for the last couple of weekends because of Human Rights Watch and work, but it seemed pretty definite then (made sense, since he was in Toronto). Oh well, I'll still go to at least O Sangue anyway and catch the rest on the New York retro in August at Anthology.
