The Cinema Guild Acquires The Last Time I Saw Macao

Posted December 4, 2012 05:13 PM by Webmaster

The Cinema GuildThe Cinema Guild announced today the acquisition of U.S. distribution rights to "The Last Time I Saw Macao," the critically-acclaimed new film from Joćo Pedro Rodrigues (To Die Like a Man) and Joćo Rui Guerra Da Mata. The film will receive a theatrical release in 2013, followed by a home video release.

This stunning amalgam of playful film noir and Chris Marker–like cine-essay from Joćo Pedro Rodrigues and Joćo Rui Guerra da Mata explores the psychic pull of the titular former Portuguese colony. After a spectacular opening scene, in which actress Cindy Scrash lip-synchs, as tigers pace behind her, to Jane Russell's "You Kill Me"—from Josef von Sternberg's Macao (1952), a key reference here—the film shifts to da Mata's off-screen recollections of growing up in this gambling haven in the South China Sea. He's come back to Macao to help a friend who later vanishes—a mystery that begets not only poetic ruminations on time, place, and memory but also magnificent compositions of flora, fauna and cityscapes.

Joćo Pedro Rodrigues was born in Lisbon. His feature films are O Fantasma (2000), Odette (2005), To Die Like a Man (2009) and The Last Time I Saw Macao (2012). Joćo Rui Guerra da Mata has co-written with Joćo Pedro Rodrigues the feature film To Die Like a Man (2009). The Last Time I Saw Macao (2012) is his first feature film as director.

The Cinema Guild is a premier distributor of independent, foreign and documentary films. Upcoming releases include Raul Ruiz' Night Across The Street, Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel's Leviathan, Jem Cohen's Museum Hours, Cindy Kleine's Andre Gregory: Before and After Dinner and Matias Pineiro's Viola.
