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.

In the latest installment of the Russian Actionist’s video-blogger cycle, an actor performs the YouTube diaries of Genadi Gorin. Housebound in Lugansk, a new republic on the frontline of the Russia-Ukraine war, his eccentric tales of alien invaders and paranormal activity, shared with his camera-confidant, draw visceral parallels to a world out of joint.
