Manoel de Oliveira is the oldest active filmmaker around today. He began making documentaries in the 1930s. After the commercial failure of his feature debut Aniki Bóbó (1942) he took up other professions. He later worked on set with Marcello Mastroianni, Catherine Deneuve and Michel Piccoli, and his films have competed at Cannes and Venice. De Oliveira has been shooting at least one film per year since 1990.
