ON THE DRAGON'S FLAKE | INNER HARBOUR FILMS | DIRECTOR | IVO M. FERREIRA

BIOGRAPHY

IVO M. FERREIRA

Ivo M. Ferreira was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1975, and is a Macau resident since 1994. Son of actors, he grew up in the midst of the theatre. He began acting as a child and was directed by some of the most important stage directors and choreographers. He developed his love for film at a very early age and soon felt drawn to a career in filmmaking.

Ivo M. Ferreira’s personal and professional life has long been associated with Macau and with China. That is the reason why, when challenged by GUIMARÃES 2012 European Capital of Culture to make a film around the idea of a “Castle” as being the cornerstone of an identitarian discourse, he chose Macau and the South of China as the starting point for this journey.

Over the course of his career, he participates in prestigious international film festivals around the world.

He is presently preparing “Letters from War”, a fiction feature film based on the homonymous novel by António Lobo Antunes. He is also preparing a freature film in Macau for 2013.

Ivo Ferreira works with simplicity, commitment and freedom.

PRESS

ON THE DRAGON'S FLAKE | 龍鱗

GUIMARÃES2012 - European Capital of Culture commissioned a short film from film director, Ivo M. Ferreira for the program “The Castle in 3 Acts”, which is part of the cycle “Scales and Territories”, Art and Architecture, GUIMARÃES2012. The film was appointed by the commissioner Paulo Cunha e Silva.

 

As Paulo Cunha e Silva puts it: "The theme of the “Castle” is a powerful metaphor for some of the most compelling contemporary issues. The Castle represents past and future, roots and utopia, origins and destination, fortress and palace, unity and diversity."

 

"In the Portuguese national imagination, the Castle Guimarães is associated to the myth of origin, the ‘cradle’ of the Portuguese nationality."

 

"To examine today how these distinctive thoughts fit together, is not only timely and indispensable, but also relevant at a time when Guimarães is the European Capital of Culture."

 

ON THE DRAGON'S FLAKE | 龍鱗 is set in present time, 2012, when Portugal (and Europe) is going through a gripping crisis whilst China is enjoying rising prosperity. The story is resonant of the past – the 12th century – and projects into the future – a mere chimera. It is also a contemporary view of the cultural relations between China and Portugal, with Macau as the starting point for this relationship.

 

“My films reflect the issues I’m interested in, my greatest concerns. They help me to understand better what I feel for life or for the world.”

 

The main actors of this short film are Margarida Vila-Nova and Siun Chong.

 

This is the only film produced in Macau for Guimarães 2012, and has the support of the Cultural Institute of Macao (Department for the Promotion of Cultural and Creative Industries), as well as the support of the Macau Foundation and Orient Foundation, TDM and CUT. The film is produced by the recently created production company INNER HARBOUR FILMS in partnership with MACAU CLOSER.

 

INNER HARBOUR FILMS is also producing a documentary about the painter Mio Pang Fei directed by Pedro Cardeira.
