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.

There’s the megalopolis of Mexico City and a tiny apartment. There’s the street singer and his mother, drowned in her prayers. There’s reality and routine and Mexico’s magic reshaping it all. There’s the inexplicable and the obvious. A contemporary Mexican tale.
