Film schedule:

What words can, at 6:00 p.m. In 1972 – still in the midst of the dictatorship – a groundbreaking, invaluable and pioneering book in feminist currents of literature was published: Novas Cartas Portuguesas. Its authors, Maria Isabel Barreno, Maria Teresa Horta and Maria Velho da Costa (The Three Marys), were immediately prosecuted for crimes against morality and the book was banned by the political police. Decades later, this collective portrait brings them together to reconstruct their story in first person.

The death of a city, at 11:00 p.m. An old building is demolished to build luxury apartments in its place. João Rosas records the daily life of the workers at work, and reveals everything that is hidden beneath the surface: real estate speculation, the exploitation of migrant workers, the city changing its skin, a disappearing landscape and a new face that emerges from the rubble.

I’m nothing, at 3:30 p.m. Edgar Pêra brings them together as flesh and blood characters in this film – which is presented as a cinenigma -, all gathered in “The Nothing Club”. Until the arrival of a mysterious woman breaks the tense harmony of this brotherhood. The script is co-written by Luísa Costa Gomes, one of the most prolific and ingenious writers of contemporary Portuguese literature.

Rabat City, at 8:30 p.m. Helena is a film producer and has a teenage daughter. Her days seem to pass without major shocks, but the death of her mother – whom she accompanied and cared for in recent years – sows a hidden uncertainty in her life.

D’Terra Manga, at 6:00 p.m. Rosa left her family in Cape Verde to seek a better life in Portugal, but there she soon discovered that life in the suburbs is hard and dangerous. Only music seems to function as an emotional escape valve from that oppressive reality.

Where is this street?, at 11:00 p.m. A film that records and celebrates Lisbon assumes its affiliation with another that also knew how to do it, decades ago. The times are different; magnetism and fascination, the same.
