Free admission subject to room capacity. (21 seats). Tickets must be collected in Cinema São Jorge in the day of the event (maximum 2 per person).

In the room used to preview films during the Estado Novo dictatorship, the lights will go out for the audience to listen to a sound-only documentary about censorship in Portugal during the years of the dictatorship. This is a session designed to be heard, which awakens the memory of a recent past which had a profound impact on the history of Portugal.

In the darkness, eyes open or closed, we’ll be listening to the stories of those who had courage and fear; we’ll hear once-hidden sounds; and we’ll feel (hear) once again the beating of unrestrained hearts. As it ends, we’ll ask: is censorship really a thing of the past?

 

Direction: Sofia Saldanha
Partnership: EGEAC/In The Dark Lisboa/Antena 2
