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.

Hra o Jablko

Věra Chytilová
1976 • Czechoslovakia • 92’
OCT 20 / 10.00 pm, São Jorge 3
OCT 23 / 4.15 pm, Culturgest – Large Aud.

A romantic comedy set in the maternity ward about an ob-gyn – Chytilová’s first womanizing, fumbling protagonist – who makes a pass at the new nurse. The film strikes the perfect balance between accessibility, stylistic innovation, and a feminist agenda.
