Seleção nacional - constelação #4: lagutrop

Translated title of the contribution: Portuguese Selection - Constellation #4: Lagutrop

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition



Portuguese cinema, in its reduced production capacity, has never had science fiction or fantastic cinema with visible expression. This does not mean that dystopian themes have not permeated various moments in our filmography. In this constellation, we intend to show some of these examples, lesser-known or even ignored works where computer screens from the beginnings of computing intersect with the wild ruins of an abandoned avant-garde architecture, and themes that revolve around the nuclear threat, the impossibility of motherhood, or the eschatologies of the end of the world.
