"Pedro Costa, the Samuel Beckett of cinema" The Guardian
Few filmmakers can boast a body of work as audacious, beautiful or challenging as that of Pedro Costa, and his second feature and follow-up to his debut Blood is one of the most extraordinary cinematic works of the past twenty years.
Casa De Lava is a dense and ingeniously metaphoric take on Jacques Tourneur's I Walked With A Zombie (1943) - while simultaneously recalling Roberto Rossellini's Stromboli (1950). It is another unique and startling film from one of the most singular and important filmmakers working today.
Presented in collaboration with Second Run
