Still Life, Susana de Sousa Dias (Portugal, 2005)

Sunday, Nov 17, 2013 5:00p

In conversation/Susana de Sousa Dias, João Pedro Rodrigues, and Nuno Lisboa
In her poetic first film, de Sousa Dias delves into a fascinating array of archival images from the period of the Salazar dictatorship. Official images and political propaganda films are slowed down and freed from their original soundtracks. By combining this footage with photos of political prisoners, the film allows us to meditate on how the authoritarian regime—as well as cinema itself—“still lives.”
