DocLisboa 2013

The programme of the 11th edition of the DocLisboa, that starts October 24 and ends November 3, was made public yesterday. Again you just have to say Respect! For the quality of the selection and for side programmes like ”Research”, ”New Visions” (curated by charismatic critic Augusto M. Deabra) and first of all the section ”Moving Stills – Photography, Photographers and Documentary Films”.

Under that (the latter) caption you will find excellently composed 80-90 compilations of short and longer documentaries grouped as ”self-portraits” (Robert Frank, Man Ray…), ”family albums” (Ingmar Bergman), ”Questioning the Image” (Godard, Farocki…), ”Surviving Images” (Agnès Varda…) or ”The Point of View of the Photographer” (Johan van der Keuken’s ”To Sang Fotostudio”, photo).

The festival includes several competiton sections: feature duration (with Avi Mograbi’s ”Once I entered a Garden” and films by Wang Bing, Anand Patwardhan and many others I have never heard about), a Portuguese section, international and short film competitions and much much more.

With a big retrospective of films by French master Alain Cavalier – do you remember ”Thérèse”, his wonderful film from 1986?
