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.

Paradise of the Heart

Ráj Srdce

Věra Chytilová
1992 • Czechoslovakia • 32'
OCT 25 / 11.00 am, São Jorge 3

Chytilová is intrigued by everything in life without exception. Paradise of the Heart, a modest philosophical essay, is closest in spirit to home movies, documenting as it does the filmmaker’s baby granddaughter’s attempts to make sense of the world around her.
