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.
Focus: B’Tselem

B’Tselem is an Israeli collective established in 1989 with the goal of exposing human rights violations perpetrated by the Israeli State in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. In 2007, they started Camera Project, handing out video cameras to Palestinians, so that they document the rights violations they witness. This work has allowed for not only complaints, but also the setting up of an on-line video library where the Palestinian point of view is key.
