Laranja Azul is an independent film and visual arts production company created in January 2000 by Catarina Alves Costa and Catarina Mourão. Laranja Azul wants to give voice to new authors with an original vision that reflect on contemporaneity, even in its relationship with the past.The production company was created by the two directors who felt the need to find their own space to produce, direct and edit their films.
In addition to films by Catarina Alves Costa and Catarina Mourão, Laranja Azul has produced films by other directors, such as João Ribeiro and José Filipe Costa, Joana Pontes, Daniel Blaufuks, Sílvia Firmino, Olga Ramos, Filipa Reis, João Miller Guerra, André Gil Mata, Leonor Noivo and Rossella Schillaci. Laranja Azul films are regularly presented at major international and national festivals. With a strong documentary root, Laranja Azul's productions are often situated in more hybrid territories between documentary and fiction, with a concern to work on new production models that seem more adequate to new cinematographic approaches.
