Mouth of Madness – Watching films under a full moon

On April 30th, under a full moon, IndieLisboa will hold a unique screening on the terrace of Cineteatro Capitólio. Starting at 21h15, the Mouth of Madness section will bring us Good Manners, a film in which Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra once again prove us that it is possible to merge cinematographic genres that we previously thought were impossible to combine. In Good Manners, the werewolf sub-genre joins the musical genre, sprinkled with a political subtext on social segregation in contemporary Brazil, where homoparentality is not even a subject. Winner of the special jury prize at the Locarno festival, this is a story about love, told in two different ways: Ana’s romantic love for Clara, and then Clara’s maternal love for Joel. The film stars the Portuguese rising star Isabél Zuaa.

The Mouth of Madness marathon is already a staple in IndieLisboa’s programme and, for more than 6 hours, it turns Cinema Ideal into the most important meeting point for all lovers of extreme cinema. This year, the marathon gathers films which aren’t afraid to deal with risky themes and territories: an action musical with a SWAT team that sings and dances between shootings (Hard Way Musical – The Action Musical), an invasion of aliens that hides among us (Mutafucaz), a pact with the demon of a shattered heart (Coyote), the loneliness of a zombie apocalypse (The Night Eats the World), a paid called (Touche dièse) or Let the Corpses Tan, where the western, Mafia and erotic film genres blend into a ravishing Mediterranean standoff.
