”Kill the Referee” is one of the films that are included in the ”foot doc” section of the coming DOCLisboa (October 15.25). It is new, made by Yves Hinant, a Belgian/Swiss coproduction, 75 mins. long. 7 other films are there to be enjoyed by football freaks like me – Ken Loach with ”Looking for Eric” (Cantona), but also classics like the one about the legendary Brasilian magician Garrincha, made in 1962 by Joaquim Pedro de Andrade.
As previously highlighted on this site, the Portuguese festival also has a section called ”Love Stories” with ”Long Distance Love” (photo) (Elin Jönsson and Magnues Gertten) and ”Padre Nostro” (Carlo lo Giudice), both reviewed on this site. And a huge presentation of the work of Jonas Mekas, and music documentaries, and competition programmes for international as well as Portuguese documentaries. What a feast!
