Luísa Homem e Inês Sapeta Dias
Alta de Lisboa

Filmmakers Luísa Homem and Inês Sapeta Dias invite a group of residents from the neighbourhoods PER7 and PER11 (Alta de Lisboa) to collectively direct a file from personal and family archives. Using images (both still and moving) and other audiovisual elements — such as videos, photos, sound recordings, drawings, objects or texts — the goal of this workshop is to explore the shapes of the archive, that always keeps a part of our life and of special moments past.
