Invited director: Mike Hoolboom

Doclisboa has regularly presented Hoolboom’s films (including Buffalo Death Mask, Lacan Palestine and We Make Couples). In these two sessions, we present his most recent works and House of Pain, from 1995-98: a seminal film of a potential cinema of transgression, where the issues of the political body, relations within capitalist societies, and the representation of love and sexuality are explored to the limit.
