Amadeo.

Amadeo: a mysteriously restless and indefatigable man as if always sensing brevity of the time he had left. An artist out of definition, whose painting questions the painting itself, indomitable, scandalous and misunderstood. For being «Infinitely» according Almada, is someone who never had the time within him. How many lives are there in Amadeo de Souza Cardoso’s brief life?

Director.

Vicente Alves do Ó was born in Sines, Portugal. With a diverse writing background in theatre, TV and cinema. He became known for his market successful biopics of some of Portugal’s most outcast poets. After his three first features, Al Berto (2017) took him in a new direction inside the LGBT scenery. In 2018, his feature Sunburn premiered at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, in Competition.
