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.
Future Now

The future questioned by a poetics of the present. Three films overwhelmingly updated, engaging other artistic practices, and relating them to political questioning – poems by Michèle Lalonde and Serge Meurant, and music by Fred Frith and Ornette Coleman.
