20th International PORTOCARTOON FESTIVAL-2018  Portugal





The disorderly growth of cities, the use of polluting energies, uncontrolled

industrialization, global warming, garbage and lack of water are making the

world less and less healthy.

Following the call of the Let’s Do It Foundation, we must make the Earth a

cleaner and healthier planet. In great powers are agreements and disagreements.

Abuses of power. Intrigues. Many speeches, few changes. In addition to the

lack of sensitivity to protect the future of humanity, there are distortions and

crimes against the environment. For all this, it is necessary to intervene with

humor from all over the world. The appeal of the Let’s Do It foundation, which

combines different NGOs, fully tunes with PortoCartoon goals.

Cleaning the planet has several meanings. It is a strong theme for the 20th

anniversary celebration of PortoCartoon-World Festival.



Following the line started in 2013, with the introduction of this field of Caricature

at PortoCartoon, we have chosen for 2018 two world icons: the fado singer

Amália Rodrigues and the filmmaker Woody Allen.

AMÁLIA RODRIGUES (1920 - 1999)

Acclaimed internationally as the “Queen of Fado”, the Portuguese artist was one

of the most brilliant female singers of the 20th century and a true ambassador

of Lusophone culture on all continents. World-wide, her live performances sold

out and thrilled mythical audiences like the Canecão carioca or the Parisian

Olympia. She sold more than 30 million records and the recognition of Fado

as “intangible heritage of humanity” (UNESCO, 2011) is very much due to her

voice. Besides being a fado singer, Amália Rodrigues was also an actress and a

singer of other musical genres of popular tradition.

WOODY Allen (1935 - )

The iconic figure of Woody Allen is mixed with the international film culture.

He made dozens of films and he participated as an actor in some of them. His

baffling neurotic characters continue to amaze by the nonsense and daring of

the dialogues. Especially in New York, where he is also practicing his inseparable

clarinet, but also in European cities such as London, Paris or Barcelona, Allen

makes cinema a restless inspiration about modern society. And he just

launched a new movie.
