Tomorrow, April 30th, the 17th IndieLisboa was supposed to start in Lisbon. As we don’t have the festival yet, TVCine Edition brings the best of the last edition of IndieLisboa to the home of the Portuguese people, with the premiere on Portuguese TV of four films that passed through the festival. Between the life of a fisherman, a dystopian world, a trip by Spanish conquistadors to the Canaries and the life of a doctor in a hospital, this special program is a unique opportunity to discover or rediscover works outside the regular display radar. IndieLisboa Special, exclusively on TVCine Edition, April 30th from 6:40 pm.

A fisherman without a boat is infuriated with his brother who is using the family vessel for day-tripping, and resents the tourists flocking to the village while locals are relegated to a sink estate on the hill. “Bait” was shot on B&W 16mm film and processed by hand.

In a dystopian future, bloodthirsty youths form a matriarchal family led by Jessica, the only one who has ever given them love and understanding. A first feature that mirrors the duo’s work in the short format (which is this year’s Silvestre Focus).
