About the Cinema and Decolonisation Cycle: Mozambique in focus
The project urges to understand decolonization as a process still in progress, which must be accepted and integrated into the social, political, cultural and personal dynamics. The project aims to create an open and dynamic space for sharing, where memories, narratives, dialogues and reflections can emerge. It is coordinated by Jessica Falconi (CEsA/CSG/ISEG/ULisboa) and curated by the Mozambican filmmakers Isabel Noronha and Camilo de Sousa.

The film club will take place from January to July 2023, with screenings once a month, always on Saturdays, where it is intended to debate and reflect on the legacies and memories of decolonization in Mozambique. Each session will have the spoken remarks of producers, directors, etc., as well as moderators and debaters who will facilitate the debate within the audience.

Coordination: Jessica Falconi (CEsA/CSG/ISEG/ULisboa)

Scientific consultancy: Joana Pereira Leite (CEsA/CSG/ISEG/ULisboa) and Ana Mafalda Leite (CEsA/CSG/ISEG/ULisboa)
