The Carnation Revolution in 1974 ended Portugal’s dictatorship and empire
and opened up a new chapter in film history. Besides national productions,
transnational films that result from agreements with the ex-colonies
Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau and Mozambique now engage with
the legacy of Portugal’s colonial history and its powerful myths of
cultural unity such as lusophony and lusotropicalism. This volume is the
first to analyze the negotiations of ideas on identity and difference in
both production modes.
