  • Best known as a prolific producer of Portuguese films from the early '60s onward, António da Cunha Telles also occasionally directs and writes screenplays. Graduating from Paris' Institut des Hautes Etudes Cinematographique in 1961, Telles started out producing films for such hot young Cinema Novo directors as Paulo Rocha. Telles made his own directorial debut in 1969 with O Cerco/ The Roundup; that year, Telles also founded the Animatógraphico distribution company to help minority directors such as Nagisa Oshima and Alain Turner reach wider audiences in Portugal. Telles managed the Instituto Portuguêse Cinema and Tobis Portuguesa in the late '70s, and started producing films directly again in 1983.
