Thom Andersen is the first of four directors to whom Curtas Vila do Conde commissioned a short film for the celebration of the festival's 20th edition. The American director is currently in Portugal, visiting some filming locations. It is also chosen the theme: the architecture of the Portuguese Eduardo Souto Moura, Pritzker Prize in 2011.

Thom Andersen was at the Festival in its 2011 edition, where he presented his short film "Get Out of the Car", which won the award for Best Documentary. This film is a symphony of Los Angeles and its iconic locations, in an almost archaeological perspective (the director visited places where the urban landscape was radically altered in recent years). It's also about the city that his masterpiece, "Los Angeles Plays Itself", is about - a film-essay on how the film has infected the audience's look on Los Angeles.

Included in this visit is also a masterclass that the director will make at Casa da Música, called "Space in film and architecture," on January 9. This is a unique opportunity to hear about his work and the impact of the cityscape in audiovisual landscape.
