Doclisboa wants to question the present of film, bringing along its history and assuming cinema as a mode of freedom. By refusing the categorization of film practice, it searches for the new problematics that cinematic image implies, in its multiple ways of engagement with the contemporary. Doclisboa tries to be a place to imagine reality through new modes of perception, reflection, and possible new forms of action.

“Man creates something with one breath and with the second breath destroys it. I wanted the audience to be aware of how the behaviour of man is contradictory. It’s not a critical reaction to the regime; it’s more actually a view of human moral behaviour.” (Vera Chytilová)
