Doc's Kingdom 2021: The Movement of Things

Arcos de Valdevez, October 1 - 5


Registration is open for Doc’s Kingdom 2021: from October 1 to 5, in Arcos de Valdevez, Portugal, The Movement of Things celebrates cinema as a communal experience in the presence of Manuela Serra, Jeannette Muñoz, Jessica Sarah Rinland, Naomi Uman and Sílvia das Fadas, among other featured filmmakers to be announced. The program of a seminar that took the name of a film by Robert Kramer ("Doc's Kingdom", Portugal, 1988) is inspired this year by another film, the only one directed by Manuela Serra ("The Movement of Things", Portugal, 1986/ 2021), commercially premiered 40 years after it was filmed in Lanheses, near Arcos de Valdevez. Putting in dialogue works and filmmakers imagining communities in the fragility of encounters, finding its unique force and form there, Doc's Kingdom 2021 brings together gestures that call us to a tactile experience of cinema, including an unprecedented series of 16mm projections at the seminar.
