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.

Electro-Pythagorus brings us the life and work of a composer, a genius disrupting the places he inhabits, in the early days of microcomputer-based music. Conversation with a Cactus also stems from fascination: the Hashimoto Experiment, when a scientist and his wife tried to teach the alphabet to a cactus in the 1970s.
Screened with: Electro‑Pythagorus (A Portrait of Martin Bartlett)
