ZÉ DA GUINÉ CRÓNICA DUM AFRICANO EM LISBOA

Director: José Manuel de S. Lopes.
An African youngster, Zé da Guiné, arrives to Lisbon looking for an abundant city, a wonderful World, where all dreams can come true. By that time, in the mid-70s, the city is only abundant in its motion and words. There was no other richness, that richness of the cornucopia he was expecting. He tries to get used to this idea, which is facilitated by the size and movement of the city. He grasps the opportunity and does what he can do best, and which is taught by experience to every African: making the new with the old. He becomes acquainted and friend with all new currents’ protagonists, from arts to the media. He reinvents fashion and invents the night. It is the Brown, the Souk, the Rockhouse, the Noites Longas, the Bebop. Lisbon prevails the night, a colorful night, where all quadrants and all chapels meet and recognize each othr in the mythical Fridays of Noites Longas. Lisbon grows, proud of its people from so many places, and creeds. Before Zé da Guiné, nights were dark, cold and scary. A quarter of a century after, what remains of all this?

Films with a political or socially conscious pulse at DOCLISBOA

user
“The Whole World Fits in Lisbon” is the rallying cry of Doclisboa’s sixth annual blitz of international documentaries that rains down on the Portuguese capital October 16-26. Rousing words indeed for Lisbon audiences who, still hungover from Portugal’s Age of Discovery, crave global stories that the inward-looking media tends to eschew.And that’s the big seduction of the country’s sole festival dedicated to nonfiction films. In its short trackrecord, Doclisboa has cultivated a public...

Flying To Portugal for the Troia International Film Festival

Sunday, June 4---Remember the good old days right after 9/11 when everyone was afraid to ride on airplanes, and those of us intrepid (or stupid) enough to continue flying off to film festivals always had empty seats around us? And airlines left on time? And the airline personnel were so happy to see a customer that you got treated like you were in first class (even though you were inevitably in the cheapo seats)? Well, I am here to tell you, brothers and sisters, that those times are long gone...

Thus maintaining its initial features (to perceive IndieLisboa as a space that contributes to revealing new films and new directors), this year the festival bet on its growth. More screens (3 in 2004, 4 this year), more films (79 last year, 130 ...
