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.

A Bagful of Fleas

1962 • Czechoslovakia • 45’
OCT 21 / 2.00 pm, Culturgest – Small Aud.

“Although it was a ‘staged’ film, A Bagful of Fleas used non-professional actors and improvisation to create an illusion of reality. Set in the cotton mills of Náchod, it presented a situation similar to that in Forman’s Loves of a Blonde, where the women outnumbered the eligible men by five to one.” Peter Hames
