The Czech Republic gained independence in 1993. The filmmaker talks to women who run their own businesses. Time capsule, act of solidarity and expression of the interviewer’s genuine interest in the interviewees, the film reiterates time and again: “Are you happy?”
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.
