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.
Invited director: Sharon Lockhart

Invited to screen her latest film, Rudzienko, and to take part in the Passages section, Sharon Lockhart put together this session. Both films address the strategies and gestures of the children recorded, as well as the bonds daily life establishes between them and the institutions where they live. Mir kumen on is one of the few surviving documentaries about Jewish life in Poland before WWII.
