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.

We follow five characters shaped based on the testimony of dozens of people arrested during the state of emergency in Canada, in October 1970. A masterful film halfway between witnesses and facts, and the creation of a political imagery.
