Two recent Portuguese productions, starring two rising local actresses, will be presented at the forthcoming 53rd Times BFI London Film Festival (October 14-29). First seen at the latest Locarno Film Festival (see news) and still unreleased in Portugal, The Portuguese Nun is the fourth film by French director Eugène Green (2001 Louis-Delluc Award winner for Toutes les Nuits).
Green cast 2003 Shooting Star Leonor Baldaque (a regular in Manoel de Oliveira's films) to play a French actress who is in Lisbon shooting an adaptation of Gabriel de Guilleragues' Letters of a Portuguese Nun.
