The introductory chapter of this volume maps some of the main discussions around Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa, as well as providing context to his work. It also argues for the strategic competence that Pedro Costa refined over the years. The approach followed here is to organise the understanding of such competence as an evolving working process or, in other words, as a narrative of production. The term narrative of production offers a possible definition of the constantly negotiated artistic and labour practices carried on by Costa within a variety of contexts – authorial, industrial, economic, cultural and social – which often merge between professional and personal spheres.
