The first Arab village to be conquered in 1948 has been fenced off when the government’s Kfar Shaul mental hospital was founded on it in 1951. The film tries to reveal the secrets of the founding fathers and questions the Israeli narrative of the Deir Yassin conquest.
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.
