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.
In this film made in collaboration with Claude Jutra and Denys Arcand fiction is overrun by direct cinema. A young man leaves his rural, remote hometown looking for a life in the city. Upon returning, he finds out that nothing lasts and sets off again.
