Circus of Love, from short Story to Short Film Miguel Clara Vasconcelos

Talks & Masterclasses & Workshops


I cannot read a piece of literature without picturing it in my mind. Some evoke such strong images in me that I feel the need to translate them into cinematic language and, inevitably, to impose my sensibility and vision unto them. But everything still changes and is transfigured from the first script idea to the finished film. During this masterclass I will reveal the secrets of this process, based on my own experience. This session is targeted towards young writers, scriptwriters and film directors, towards literature and cinema students, and towards readers and cinephiles interested in adaptations. Participants will get to see the movie at the end of the session.
