João Paulo Ferreira
João Paulo Ferreira was born in 1943. He began making films in 1975, with the “Cineground” group, which tried to make a first attempt at commercializing Super 8 films in small entertainment venues (bars and night clubs) in Portugal. Those were, in fact, the ideal places at the time for the divulgation of an underground cinematography and, in the case of João Paulo Ferreira, a queer one as well (as happened with his contemporary, Óscar Alves, to whom he was assistant director and editor in the four films shown last year at Queer Lisboa). He was also a member of the Independent Filmmakers Centre.
