Companhia de Produção de Entretenimento e Cultura is Cinematheque Passion’s new management team and they’re creating an event for the reopening of this venue: “A Love Letter to the Cinema”. They’ve selected films from different countries and territories across different eras.
Whether classics in film history or masterpieces in their own right, their themes are all related to the cinema. In form or content, they always manage to evoke an indescribable love for the films among film-goers–the director’s fantastical musings across reality and dreams in Otto e Mezzo; the heroine who walks into the big screen to seek her true love in The Purple Rose of Cairo; the memories and nostalgia of growing up with film in Cinema Paradiso; Gene Kelly tap dancing under the lamppost in the rain in Singin’ In the Rain.
All these classic scenes and different narrative styles invite the audience into one film world after another through the mind of every director. Selections for “A Love Letter to the Cinema: Making Films on the Big Screen” include Singin’ in the Rain (Remastered) (1952), Otto e Mezzo (Remastered) (1963), The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985), Cinema Paradiso (Remastered) (1990), Close-up (1990), Center Stage (Remastered) (1992), Goodbye, Dragon Inn (Remastered) (2003), Phantom of Illumination (2017) and Talking the Pictures (2019).
