Jean-François, Ronald, Alexis, Cédric, Benoit and Maxim are modern-day gladiators. As they prepare for future competitions, they follow extreme diets and slave away at the gym. All share the same obsession: overcoming the limits of their bodies.
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.
