Conversations and films about Cinema itself

Films and filmmakers are also the subject matter of this year’s official selection, allowing curious fans of Cinema to find out about stories and schools linked to the seventh art.

Exprmntl, the documentary by Brecht Debackere who visits the turbulent five editions of the festival founded by Jacques Ledoux, director of the Belgian Cinematheque.

On the Silver Globe. Andrzej Żuławski’s damn science fiction film, which was boycotted by the Belgian communist government, is presented in a digital restoration that reveals the visionary artist who was Żuławski. Thursday, May 4th, at the Cinemateca Portuguesa.

In Born with a Thunderstorm Leonor Areal pays homage to the only neo-realist director of national cinema, Manuel de Guimarães. Tuesday, May 9, at Cinemateca Portuguesa. Another homage to Alejandra Rojo to filmmaker Raoul Ruiz in the documentary Raoul Ruiz Contre L’ignorance Fiction! (May 11 at the Cinemateca Portuguesa). Zeigen was man liebt recovers the spirit and creative excesses of the generation of German filmmakers of the 60s, in a documentary directed by actress Iris Berben and critic Uwe Nettelbeck.

Les dames du bois de Bologne, the film that cemented Bresson’s reputation, is a story of love revenge, staging and regret. Passed at the Cinemateca Portuguesa on 11 May.

Un, parfois deux…, follows the shooting of the two films that Vecchiali filmed in 2015 at his home in Plan de la Tour: C’est l’amour and Le Cancre (both part of the retrospective dedicated to the director). The documentary that intimately and intimately reveals the methods and qualities of the work of the octogenarian filmmaker, will be shown at the Cinemateca Portuguesa on May 8.

Closing the routes on film and related movements, Director’s Cut’s special short block. Dietmar Brehm builds, in Hallo Mabuse, a hypnotic appropriation of Fritz Lang’s Das testament des Dr Mabuse (1933). Young Mr. Lincoln by Eisenstein is a fun reassembly of the Ford movie, in the style of the Russian director. In Tati vs. Bresson: The Gag, by Mark Rappaport, compare the looks of two (apparently) very different filmmakers. Already Filipe Afonso elaborates, in Special A/ Effects, a reflection on the cinema as illusion. Finally we visited Fitzcarraldo (1982), when the leader of an Amazonian tribe proposed to Werner Herzog to kill Klaus Kinski, to restore peace (Killing Klaus Kinski).Films and filmmakers are also the subject matter of this year’s official selection, allowing curious fans of Cinema to find out about stories and schools linked to the seventh art.
