Science Fiction Films from Africa and Latin America (3rd Session)

Open Air Auditorium
Admission 3 €
Whites Out, Blacks In, Adirley Queirós (Brazil), 2014.
This year, in the Open Air Auditorium, viewers will be able to watch a film series that has rarely been screened in Portugal. The series is, in a way, a continuation of a debate on Science Fiction in Africa and Latin America held last May as part of the Observatory on Other Literatures. Classic and contemporary sci-fi films will be screened from various African and Latin American countries, where a tradition of this genre exists that is completely unknown in Portugal. While these short, mid-length and feature-length films follow certain sci-fi conventions, their themes, the kinds of characters portrayed and the scenarios in which they take place are highly unique. This series is guaranteed to be a true cinematic revelation.
Whites Out, Blacks In, Adirley Queirós (Brazil)
Fiction, 2014, 93’
Shots at a black music party in the outskirts of Brasilia injure two men that get scarred for life. A third man comes from the future to investigate what happened and to prove that it is all the society's fault.
