Lisboa, Cronica Anedotica by Jose Leitao de Barros (PT)
Jose Leitao de Barros died 40 years ago, back in 1967.

The director of Ala-Arriba!, A Severa, Maria do Mar and Camoes, among many others is back this Thursday, the 19th of July, on a special screening of the 1930's Lisboa, Cronica Anedotica.

This silent black and white documentary shows Lisbon, its people and day to day life in Portugal's capital, on a series of small episodes, recorded in a poetic and humorous style.

Lisboa, Cronica Anedotica will now see a new life, at MusicBox, Lisbon, when the Flak Ensemble (Flak, Filipe Valentim, Viviena Tupikova, Abel Gomes and Diogo Faro) dress it with a brand new soundtrack (specially prepared for this screening) performed live this evening.

The original soundtrack was composed by Frederico de Freitas, Juan Fabre and Antonio Melo.

Do not miss it. This Thursday, at MusicBox, starting at 23h.

Some sounds available at Flak's MySpace.
