Mostra presents a retrospective in honor of Andy Warhol. “O Bom Povo Português”, by Rui Simões, on the Portuguese Carnation Revolution, was screened. It is considered one of the best movies ever made on political manipulation. It wins the Public Choice and the Critics Awards. For the first and only time in the history of the Festival, the screening of a film was forbidden in the 4th Mostra. The short-film forbidden by censorship was about the socialist indoctrination of Chinese children. In kitsch style, it showed children praising Mao under an apple tree whose apples had been painted to look redder. For the third year in a row, Mostra’s poster is created by Paulo de Andrade.
