“In Ceiling, Chytilová focuses on a fashion model (she had been a model herself), someone who is dressed and made up to be looked at. In exposing the boredom and physical discomfort of existing for one’s appearance, she also reveals the fashion world as one controlled by men.” Peter Hames
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.
