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.

An improvised, material music-film, Miroir séb fragile! asserts absence as togetherness, text as “a rupture in the image”. Over contemporary and archival images of the Bosnian conflict’s destruction, Doborac’s film unremittingly interrogates the relationship between image, text and politics, radically challenging the possibility of any document or depiction of war.
This film is part of the Doc Alliance section.
Screened with: Miroir séb fragile!
