This film does show us a paradoxical story: how the exorcism force of this creative movement of the techno music in Detroit and the creation – by each of the pioneers – of their independent labels have allowed an underground culture to resonate worldwide. With Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Carl Craig and Jeff Mills.
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.
