Vídeo Promocional de Amares Country: Portugal Lenght: 01’30’’ Director: Rui costa Producer: Paulo Varela Copyright: Takemedia - Produções Multimédia E Audiovisuais Lda Locations: Amares, Portugal PLAY Synopsis Director’s Bio Amares is a lovely village in the North of Portugal, located in a mountainside area, in a lovely valley formed by the Cávado and Homem rivers, with a rural environment, famous for the oranges production and the much renowned Green Wine (“Vinho Verde“). The vestiges of human occupancy in the region are quite remote, visible in the stretch of a Roman road that linked Braga to Astorga, and also in the Lago and Amares Hill Forts. Amare’s development was quite influenced by the Religious Orders that were installed in the region: the Order of Saint Benedict in Rendufe Monastery on the 11th century and the Cistercian Order that founded the important Santa Maria do Bouro Monastery in the 12th century. Amares presents a rural and simple architecture, typical of this northern mountainside region, where small rural houses with two floors endure among big luxury manor houses that belonged and still do to the great agricultural landlords, like the Tapada House, among many others that can be found throughout the region in the many lovely small villages. This region offers great conditions for nature lovers, once it can be found here almost in its pure state, providing as well great Fluvial Beaches, perfect for the practice of the most diversified leisure and tourism activities. Rui Costa was born on July 4, 1977, in Viseu. It worked for RTP and RTP Internacional, and is currently Director of takeMedia company audiovisual and multimedia productions. It is a businessman, musician, composer and director. Early on that his gaze curiously sought the arts. The same look which sought knowledge and science. It is given to physics, but not always the chemical. Search an organization, not realizing that your clutter operating at full speed, and it’s perfect. Man of numbers and mathematics, but quickly falls by the natural imperfection of nature. In his director’s career stands out the participation in the film: “For, Listen and Look” Jorge Pelican in 2009.
