Joao Canijo

João Canijo was born in Portugal. Unlike other Portuguese filmmakers of his generation (those that made their appearance in the late 1980s and early '90s), João did not direct his first film after attending a film school. Instead, he underwent a kind of apprenticeship working as an assistant to Manoel de Oliveira, Wim Wenders, Werner Schroeter and Alain Tanner. Sangue do Meu Sangue is his seventh feature.
