Project By Serendipity Arts Festival

An illustrated presentation delving into mostly unseen and forgotten footage, kept under the Colonial Archive of the Portuguese Cinematheque – Museum of Cinema in Lisbon, revisiting images and their stories, trying to understand how Portugal used cinema as a powerful tool to extend and crystalize the idea of ‘empire’ and the continuation of colonial rule. In other words, which ‘Goa’ were these films planting in viewers’ imaginations and how can we relate to them now?
