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.

Focusing on actual lives in Greece, the struggle to assure the survival and livelihood of communities, against the coming of new fascisms, and in favour of political and social sustainability. A feisty, tender and watchful film with tremendous poetic strength.
