Pedro Filipe Marques

Longa Noite
Eloy Enciso
2019 • Spain • 90’

A few years after the Civil War was over, Anxo returns to his home village in the Galician countryside. Through casual conversations along his trip, he discovers how war and the new regime have transformed the relationships among people. Once at home, he is greeted with concern by the victorious, but also by the defeated ones, who see in Anxo the challenge to start a journey to the past and their silenced memories. Excerpts from plays, memoirs and letters from the Franco regime serve as inspiration for Longa noite, a film exploring the social and political foundations of fascism.

A Story From Africa
Billy Woodberry
2018 • Portugal • 33’

Following the 1885 Berlin Conference resolution on the partition of Africa, the Portuguese army uses a talented ensign to register the effective occupation of the territory conquered in 1907 to the Cuamato people, in the south of Angola. A Story from Africa enlivens this rarely seen photographic archive through the tragic tale of Calipalula, the Cuamato nobleman essential to the unfolding of events in this Portuguese pacification campaign.

 

Sonhámos um País
Camilo de Sousa and Isabel Noronha
2018 • Mozambique, Portugal • 70’

In the early 70s, Camilo de Sousa left Lourenço Marques, Mozambique, travelled Europe, joined the Frelimo guerrilla and became a filmmaker. Now living in Portugal, he returns to Mozambique to be reunited with two former comrades in arms. With Aleixo Caindi and Julião Papalo, he recalls ancient times, when the joy of liberation made way for dark times and the quest for a ‘new man’ destroyed a country’s dreams and illusions.

Un film dramatique
Eric Baudelaire
2019 • France • 115’

What are we doing together? A recurring question for the students of the film group at Dora Maar middle school, and for Éric Baudelaire who worked with them over their four years starting in the 6th grade. Answering this political question – one that involves representations of power, social violence and identity – led them to seek a cinematic form that does justice to the uniqueness of each student, but also to the substance of their group.

143 rue du désert
Hassen Ferrani
2019 • Algeria, France, Qatar • 104’

In the middle of the Algerian Sahara, a woman writes her story. She welcomes truckers, wandering beings and dreams for a cigarette, a coffee or eggs… Her name is Malika.

Santikhiri Sonata
Thunska Pansittivorakul
2019 • Thailand, Germany • 75’
(City of Lisbon Award For Best International Competition Film – Doclisboa’19)

This film was shot in an area called Santikhiri, which means “the Hill of Peace”. After General Prem’s government came to power in the 1980s, everything—drugs, communism, corruption, human trafficking, and stateless persons—was entirely suppressed to foster order and peace. “When I was a kid, the TV was filled with propaganda, instilling in people’s minds that the military government protected the country from different threats. The unwavering illusion and pride in the country’s status of never having been colonized have successfully shaped our blind nationalism.” (Thunska Pansittivorakul)
