Doclisboa ’17 opens today

One of the best film festivals in Lisbon opens today

Actually Doclisboa ’17 opened yesterday. We just didn’t know that until one of our guests told us. He is a journalist who is attending the whole festival and went to yesterday’s pre-opening

This Friday has been ‘our’ official opening because of one film Grace Jones – Bloodlight and Bami that opens the festival’s Heart Beat Section

The Heart Beat section opens with a greater-than-life diva, Grace Jones. A wild disco and new wave night, dedicated to the slaves to the rhythm.
