by Porto/Post/Doc / 09 05 2022

Two dates mark the return of 6.doc to the city of Porto. Developed as partnership between Doclisboa and Há Filmes na Baixa!, three films premiered in the last edition of the Lisbon festival will be shown. The sessions will take place on the 13th and 14th of May, at Passos Manuel. Sessions are scheduled for 10:00 pm. Ticket prices can be seen here.

The first session will take place on May 13, with the screening of the film 918 Nights, directed by Arantza Santesteban. A powerful political essay of memories and reflections on the Basque filmmaker's personal experience of detention and imprisonment for 918 nights. The film was the winner of the City of Lisbon Grand Prize for Best Film in the International Competition at the 19th Doclisboa.

On May 14, double session with Jamaika, directed by José Sarmento Matos, and Nós Viemos, directed by José Vieira. The first, premiered in the Da Terra à Lua section at DocLisboa 2021, looks at the impact that the pandemic had on the reality of the neighborhood of Jamaica, grappling with new chapters in a history marked by poverty and the feeling of isolation of this community, segregated and stigmatized during years old. The second recovers the collective memory of a period in Portuguese history marked by one of the largest migratory movements forced by the dictatorship, at the same time as it initiates a dialogue between the difficulties felt by Portuguese immigrants and those facing the current wave of migrants, some of whom from sub-Saharan Africa.
