A discussion around the retrospectives at IndieLisboa 2020. Many of the topics central to the Forum section of the Berlin Film Festival are also reflected in Ousmane Sembène’s filmography: the criticism of violence and colonial structures – even after the end of the regimes, feminism and class struggle, all play a central role in his films. What significance do these films have for us today? How do we see them, also in the context of the current debates that bring back many of the struggles of that time to the centre of attention? What forms of cinematic resistance are still relevant today, far beyond a mere aestheticisation of social issues? And how important is the idea of a living archive that shows in the present what, also on a social level, is still relevant?

Free entrance.

Event in partnership with Goethe-Institut Portugal and with the support of the Associação São Bartolomeu dos Alemães in Lisbon.
