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 Great Noise

Un grand bruit

Four films rethinking the subjects they invoke. Mike Hoolboom makes two films based on Red Cross archive footage – he proposes a narrative, in Nursing History, and dissects it to the limit, in Visiting Hours. In A Great Noise, Guillaume Mazloum voices words by poets who crossed a century of horror and hope. Tepantar, in turn, quotes Marguerite Duras and Guy Hocquenghem to question identities in a stateless quest.
