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.

Marcel Carrière

The special guest of the Another America – The Unique Cinema of Quebec Retrospective is first and foremost the “sound man” of Quebec’s cinema, which in this case means one of the most decisive developers of this cinema’s identity. He was part of the famous French team at the National Film Board since its start, and mostly through the sound aspect one of the creators of direct cinema’s language, alongside Brault, Groulx, Aquin, Fournier, Perrault, Jutra or Lamothe. He also co-directed some of team’s seminal short films, and from 1964 onwards he directed countless remarkable short and feature length films. He was responsible for or contributed to the sound of over a hundred films, and came to take on significant institutional positions in the region’s cinema – he now stands as one of the most important representatives of its history.
The talk will be held in French, with no translation.
