Carte Blanche to Ana Jotta

Francisca Manuel

On the occasion of her solo exhibition TI RE LI RE, Crédac is giving Ana Jotta carte blanche for the Crédakino programme. She presents A Coragem de Lassie, a documentary that the director Francisca Manuel devoted to her in 2009.

A Coragem de Lassie (Lassie’s Courage) plunges us into the world of Ana Jotta. We follow the artist at work, in her studio and during the setting up of an exhibition. Her work is illuminated by the comments of people close to her. The title is borrowed from an exhibition by the artist in 1988.
