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.

From Charles de Gaulle’s shouting “Vive le Québec libre!” to the Mi’kmap people’s struggle for accessing the resources in their territory. Two sides of the same coin: colonisation and the representation of the ideas of justice and autonomy. What does a free Quebec mean?

Screened with: La visite du général de Gaulle au Québec
