New digital restoration by Pedro Costa!

Never before released in the US, Paulo Rocha’s debut feature THE GREEN YEARS, gloriously shot in black-and-white, is an extraordinary and haunting coming-of-age tale. Nineteen-year-old Julio (Rui Gomes) heads to Lisbon from the provinces and gets a job as a shoemaker for his uncle Raul (Ruy Furtado). But when he meets Ilda (Isabel Ruth), a confident young housemaid who becomes a regular shop visitor, the two begin a tentative romance until the realities of the outside world come crashing through.
