Douro Fiana Fluvial

Portugal, 1932 (MIFF 1957, In Sun and Snow)

Director: Manuel de Oliviera

A lively documentary impression of the port of Oporto. The film owes something to the Soviet classics and the French avantgarde, yet remained essentially Portuguese and is noted for its photography and editing. The director later made Anaki Bobo.
