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.

Serpent Rain started with an artist asking a philosopher “how do we get to the post-human without technology?”, and the philosopher replying “maybe we can make a film without time”. This session is a dialogue where the capitalist arrangement of the world finds its ground in the thick contexts where individuals become subjects. From Karlon (Salaviza) to Frank Little (Wilkerson), from creole rap to the miner songs from Montana, we reach the equation between slavery and the exploitation of the planet.
