News: Manoel de Oliveira turns 104

Manoel de Oliveira, the oldest film director alive, turns 104 today!
His latest release is Gebo And The Shadow which came out this year and was screened during the Venice Film Festival. Despite his age he already has two more projects: O Velho do Restelo based on Os Lusíadas by Luís de Camões and A Igreja do Diabo.
His first film Douro, Faina Fluvial was released in 1931.
Below there’s a lovely video of Manoel de Oliveira dancing when he was 99 years old. What a man!
Happy Birthday Manoel de Oliveira!
