Real is (also) political at Porto/Post/Doc

by Porto/Post/Doc / 12 11 2019


In a year that we celebrate identities, both in their affirmations and limits, Porto/Post/Doc brings together a set of films that, by real and fictionalized histories, question the way politics organizes and determines the daily life of citizens. Censored films that are a window into the refreshing modernity of Moroccan society in the 1970s, accounts of the black community's, LGBTI+ revolution struggles, surviving images of Palestine's representations, and a critical revisit of Francoism's foundations, in a Spain that today is burning in the streets, are some of the gateway to the real. Off-screen, there is still space to discover the avant-garde protest of Sereias' music, a collective from Porto that presents their debut album, "O País a Arder", as part of the festival, in a concert that recovers archival images of the period after the revolution (Ongoing Revolutionary Process) in the city of Porto.
