The Political Festival returns to Cinema São Jorge this August and will get the Lisboa na Rua programme underway. The four-day programme will include debates, films, performances, music and humour, with the Environment as its central theme. With climate change at the centre of young people's demands, and governmental and economic powers increasingly under pressure to change their policies in favour of more sustainable development, the festival will focus particularly on the role of citizens as transformative agents, whilst not ignoring the impact that the covid-19 pandemic is having worldwide. For the first time the festival will feature a country focus. This year Brazil has been chosen and will be subject of our attention at several points during the programme.



Exhibition by Carolina Maria

Several studies on the planet and climate change predict that in 2050 we will be living in extreme conditions, in an unprecedented scenario. What will our food be like in 2050? What kinds of products will we consume? What will our food be made of? This exhibition is an illustrated satire about the food of the future ... and everything else. “2050” was originally conceived as part of a series of exhibitions on the theme “Gastronomy and the Rest”, at the invitation of the Quinta da Cruz Museum in Viseu. It reflects on a dreadful, dystopian future.

BELEZA COMO VINGANÇA” (Beauty as revenge)
