“There is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself.”
Herman Melville.

With that in mind, a good film, in order to exist, often requires a great book as its predecessor. And Mr. Melville wrote a few of those.
Herman would have turned 200 this August. To celebrate, and honor his contribution to the world of cinema, Cinemateca Portuguesa is screening six films from around the world and from different eras, each inspired by one of the adventurous wordsmith’s tales.
Starting with, you guessed it, Moby Dick (did you know that Ray Bradbury co-wrote the screenplay for that one?).
