Filmmakers and TV

Since the great Francisco Rocha (the Henri Langlois of modern cinema for us Portuguese cinephiles) has invited me to select ten films for his "Quem Programa Sou Eu" series (something that could be translated as "I'm the one who programs"), which started this year with the selections of Carlos Natálio (followed by Alexandre Mourão, Álvaro Martins and José Oliveira), and since I've decided my ten films would be a small sample of the work of great filmmakers for television, I thought it would be a good idea to resume and publish this list I've been working on for quite some time, with the films, series, mini-series and episodes I was able to find in the database and a longer list…
