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 Scream from Silence

Mourir à tue-tête

Anne Claire Poirier
1979 • Canada • 96'
OCT 25 / 9.30 pm, Cinemateca – M. F. Ribeiro Cinema

One of the bravest, most intelligent films on the culture of rape, addressing it as a collective issue, anchored in society, and expressing it in its physical, emotional, spiritual and legal contours. Suzanne is a nurse who is raped and led to total degradation.
