Artur Semedo

In the lineage of the portuguese “Revue Theatre” genre, the comical films of Artur Semedo, in which he himself appears as an actor, were screened by Confederação in a 6 films’ series. A key figure of the humor in Portugal between the 50’s and 90’s, the work of the “man with the black glove”, a staunch Benfica’s supporter, has had, to this day, a controversial reception. The book opens with a long imaginary interview with the director, illustrated with small images that could have been taken from a scrapbook.

This volume was published under the collection “Cadernos Hestóricos”, that the company Confederação has been devoting to the relationship between theater and cinema. The format of this series is constant, always printed in black and white, and the covers feature a handmade drawing printed each time on a different colored paper. Every publication has its own layout, and the graphics and typography are approached in relation to the particular theme.
