This edition of DocLisboa is presented as being of resistance, because it will have sessions in class, and online, and will extend until March, divided by modules, to respond to the circumstances of the pandemic of the covid-19.
In this 18th edition, the festival will feature 206 films, of which 31 will be premiered worldwide, which will be divided into a monthly program, in modules, with screen and online sessions.
The festival opens today at Culturgest with ‘Nheengatu – The Language of the Amazon’, which records José Barahona’s journey to meet a population of the Amazon and a language imposed on the Indians by the ancient colonizers.
In the first week of DocLisboa, there will be a collection of non-perishable food and hygiene goods for the Audiovisual Union, to be distributed by professionals in the artistic sector whose work was affected by Covid-19.
There will be collection points at the São Jorge cinema and at Culturgest, where goods such as pasta, rice, legumes, canned goods, milk, baby food, toothpaste, toilet paper and feminine hygiene items are ordered.
The first module of the festival runs until November 1, including, among others, the films ‘Guerra‘, a world premiere of production co-directed by José Oliveira and Marta Ramos, and ‘Chelas Nha Kau‘, from Bagabaga Studios, in partnership with the Bataclan 1950 collective.
