Portugal Mourns Cinema Legend Manoel de Oliveira

LISBON – Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva mourned on Thursday the death of Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who passed on Thursday at the age of 106, and praised him as “the highest symbol of Portuguese cinema worldwide.”

In a brief statement delivered at the Belem Presidential Palace in Lisbon, the president described the late director as one of the most important names in the history of filmmaking, adding that Portugal has lost one of its most iconic symbols of its contemporary culture.

The Portuguese veteran filmmaker died on Thursday, and was announced by the production company with which Oliveira worked while directing his last two works.

Oliveira, who was born in 1908, was considered the oldest living active filmmaker, with a career that spanned nine decades during which he directed 60 films, the last of which, “The Old Man of Belem,” premiered last year.
