Filming the Darkness: Conversation with Pedro Costa

Since the premiere in “Blood”, Pedro Costa’s work has aesthetic and thematic affiliations with classic horrorcinema. The term “zombie”, for example, is usually used in analyses and reviews (mainly abroad) of his filmsbut always referring more to Jacques Tourneur than to George Romero, which makes sense because “Casa deLava” started as an attempt at a remake of Tourneur’s “I Walked with a Zombie” from 1943. The “shadows” ofTourneur - one of the fathers of modern horror - are a constant presence, but other references of horror cinemaare mixed along. It will be around these influences that this conversation will take place, as well as the “Filmingthe Darkness” technique that makes Pedro Costa one of the great contemporary filmmakers.
