Doclisboa empieza hoy, orgulloso de sus principios
Brisseau – 251, Marcadet’s Street, de Laurent Achard

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

The 16th edition of Doclisboa starts this Thursday and will, until 28 October, present a rich programme of 243 films from 54 countries, including 68 world and 22 international premieres. The programme remains unchanged despite last-minute pressures from two embassies to remove a movie from its International Competition selection and to review a number of texts (related to the focus on the Euphrates). This gave Apordoc, the association behind the creation of the event, an opportunity to defend not only fundamental democratic and artistic values, but also the notion that the work of such a festival cannot be neutral and should spark debate, provided that it is open and constructive.
