This is a free event organized by the Kaunas Film Center „Romuva“, the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Portugal in Kaunas and Camões – Portuguese Institute for Cooperation and Language
„José e Pilar” portrays the relationship between Portuguese Nobel Prize winner for Literature, José Saramago, and his Spanish wife, journalist and translator Pilar del Rio, during the writing process of Saramago’s novel „The Elephant’s Journey”. It is a touching account of the endurance of the artistic spirit, providing a glimpse into the life of the Portuguese writer. And it also shows us, as Saramago says, that „there is always another way to say everything”.
The film has dialogues in Portuguese and Spanish. It will be screened with Lithuanian subtitles.
