From the Editor

"Casa de Lava is a 1994 film by Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa.
35 years old at the time, he traveled to the islands of Cape Verde in the AtlanticOcean to shoot this second feature of his, which on completion signaled to the world the presence of an outstanding talent.

During the course of the production preparation, he compiled what he saw, what he read, his many ideas and images into a scrapbook instead of a screenplay. Paintings, movie stills, letters, newspaper articles, scribbles, quotes from novels, postcards, lines of dialogue, snapshots that guided him throughout the shooting of the film and that he continued - and finished - after returning to Lisboa.

This green-covered notebook, overflowing with collage and dog-eared from his hands, became an autonomous object, a visual record of Costa's way of thinking.

Reproducing the original book in full color, we've included an exclusive interview with Pedro Costa by Nuno Crespo and a text by Philippe Azoury (both in Portuguese, English and French)."
