This paper will discuss Manoel de Oliveira’s 2003 film Um Filme Falado, as a post 9/11 work committed to elaborating the position on modern African/anti-Islamic crusades, that Oliveira had already sketched in previous works such as ”’Non’ ou a Va Gloria de Mandar”. My reading focuses on the ways in which Oliveira deploys a gender reversal of Sebastianic mythology to issue a warning against Portugal’s complicity in globalized networks of power.
