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.
Focus: Andres Veiel

Following his last film, Beuys, a portrait based on fascinating archive footage, we present three films on the artistic process by film and stage director Andres Veiel. His work intersects two axes: the analysis of German history through buried marks still felt today (the greatest example being The Survivors), and journeys through the relation between those memories and artistic creation as a place of exorcism and openness to other narrative and emotional possibilities.
