Two films that focus on the themes of religious intolerance and racism are the subject of a special session on Thursday evening, part of the 36th Fantasporto - International Festival of Oporto Cinema.
Both films are focused on the persecution of the Jews during World War II and are based on real events.
"Exodus To Shanghai" (2015), directed by Anthony Hickcox tells the story of Dr. Ho, the Chinese consul in Vienna, who granted, against the instructions of his government, visas to thousands of Jews so that they could flee to Shanghai (China), when Germany announced in 1938 annexation of Austria.
Along with this movie, you will see a short film (17 minutes) French "Ensemble", by Mohamed Fekrane (2012), which tells the story of the Imam of the Mosque of Paris who saved more than a thousand young Jews from the Nazi occupying Paris. The imam hid theem, protected them by mixing them with fake muslim identities  in the Islamic community of Paris and teaching them arabic. To better ensure their safety taught them Arabic, Islamic prayers and gave them new identities.
These stories teach us that all races and religions can live together in peace, challenging the blindness of racial prejudice.
The two films, which are included in the section non-competitive 'Premiere & Panorama' Fantasporto will be presented in the meeting entitled "Fantasporto for Peace" in the Small Auditorium of Rivoli, at 21:15. March 3rd.
The 36th Fantasporto - Oporto Film Festival, which began on 22 February, will run until March 6, at the Rivoli Theatre in Porto, with 161 films from 40 countries representing the four inhabited continents, with about 41 world premieres and European and with the presence of dozens of film personalities (actors, directors, producers, distributors) from all over the world.

About Fantasporto

Dorminsky Mario


The Oporto International Film Festival, specializes in fantasy and science-fiction films in its Official Competitive section.
This Festival also includes the 18th New Directors Week with an Official Competition and a Retrospective section. The Festival’s director, Mário Dorminsky, is preparing, with the help of the Portuguese Film Institute, a program with Portuguese Films for the benefit of the foreign guests in Fantasporto.
The Festival runs now in 5 theatres (2,600 seats altogether ) and screens nearly new 200 feature films each year. The press coverage of the Festival is made by all the most important Portuguese newspapers, radio stations and television networks and by foreign specialized press. This allows press dossiers of about 5000 clippings every year and represents a unique media coverage in Portugal for similar cultural events.

Almost 110,000 entries, per year is the average of the Festival’s past editions.
