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.
Inventing Freedom 3

Isolation, alienation, the difficult pact between individual and reality. In Cloutier’s film, one questions the place of the spectator. In Drifting States, a man isolates himself in a small community, in order to rebuild his life after an action beyond repair.
