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.

Sea of Clouds

George Clark
2016 • United Kingdom, Taiwan • 16’
OCT 25 / 4.00 pm, Culturgest – Small Aud.

Conjoining film’s materiality with the politics, poetry and mythology residing in landscape, Sea of Clouds reflects rural Taiwanese screenings as a means of covert assembly, whilst A Distant Echo overlays the Californian desert with a literal and figurative choir of voices, conjuring a historical epic out of the echoes between past, present and cinema.
