The festival came to an end last night with several events, including the screening of Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups and a tribute to actor Luís Miguel Cintra, who recently announced the end of his career. The tribute was followed by the screening of E Não se Pode Exterminá-lo?, a 1980 film version of a theatre performance by Cintra’s company, Cornucópia, co-directed by Solveig Nordlund and Jorge Silva Melo. Cintra, who was a regular in Manoel de Oliveira’s films, was crowned with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the latest local film prizes, the Sophia Awards.
