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.

A freight train – 68 cars, 140 axles, and 18,000 tons of cargo in total – departs from Prague, too heavily loaded to make any stops along the way. An elaborate editing exercise that utilized some truly spectacular imagery.
