Cinema & Política
Cinema & Politics is a film and discussions programme that proposes a critical and reflective analysis of the impact of cinema on contemporary society, addressing philosophical, socio-economic and socio-cultural issues. Through a careful selection of films that explore relevant themes, such as power, democracy, (in)equality, freedom, justice, resistance, memory, ecology, globalization, among others, this cycle aims to stimulate debate and reflection on the relevance of cinema in understanding today’s world.
The programme also offers a space for discussion and exchange of ideas – the sessions will always be followed by discussions, moderated by researchers and students, with the participation of guests with a direct connection to the proposed theme, thus seeking to deepen reflection and encourage the collective construction of the knowledge.
The programme is organized by Marta Fiolić and Maria Irene Aparício of the research group Cinema & Politics: Philosophical Approaches, within the scope of the activities of the Laboratory of Cinema and Philosophy (CineLab) and with the support of the Laboratory of Dissemination (OutLab), in collaboration with Cossoul (Sociedade de Instrução Guilherme Cossoul).
