The Cinema Programme at the ULisboa is presenting the “Transformações” Cinema Cycle, during November 2023, at the Rectory of ULisboa.

The “Transformações” Cinema Cycle, hosted by ULisboa, has the scientific supervision of Professor Mariana Liz and is part of the "Cinema, Audiovisual and Contemporary Imaginaries" Cluster of the Centre for Comparative StudiesSchool of Arts and Humanities, Ulisboa.

Mariana Liz will present this cycle, which is dedicated to the theme of “Transformações”, outlining in her synopsis the subject of this programme: “In the course of every being's life, a multitude of transformations take place. In the world of literature, Gregor Samsa was transformed into an insect. In physics, Émilie du Châtelet revealed that energy can neither be created nor obliterated. In cinema, metamorphosis has served as both a narrative theme and a symbolic motif. This film series focuses on the different strands that have passed through us, as individuals, as well as a society, from the 1960s to the modern day. It screens five films that address such diverse transformations as the rural exodus, urban planning, gender (dis)equality, climate changes, migrations as well as dictatorial regimes, in order to emphasise that in the arts, as in life, nothing is lost, but everything is transformed.”

This programme will be screened over the month of November 2023, in five cinema sessions that will be attended by ULisboa researchers and professors.

This Cinema Cycle is admission free, in the Great Hall of the Rectory of ULisboa, for the entire academic community and the general public.
