World Machine

“Look, take notice, listen”, the machine of the world says to the wanderer when they meet on the road. But after catching a glimpse of the utopia of progress, opened to him by the machine, the traveller rejects it and slowly goes on his way, hands at his sides, meditating on his loss. Following the Brazilian poet, Carlos Drummond de Andrade, on his disenchanted rereading of the world-machine of Camões (1572), we want to go back to the road of that encounter with the machine of the world. There, we will investigate the possibilities and dilemmas posed today to the cinema machine facing a global belligerent, extractive, exploiting machinery whose only rule is to hide its mechanics and operating codes.

From observational documentary to forensic architecture, Doc’s Kingdom 2018 proposes a program of investigations and experiences reinvesting on the capacity of cinema to plunge into the contingency of historical time and attest, by its own means, the indisputable evidence of the real. Among the audiovisual gear of war and control machines dodging their own counter-shot, what strategies are filmmakers, artists and scientists developing to give us back an image of the world?

From the 2nd through the 7th of September in Arcos de Valdevez, Portugal, Doc's Kingdom gathered an international community of 100 participants for an imersive, blind program of screenings and discussions, also including meals, walks and special events. The seminar is the unabridged and cumulative experience including surprise film screenings, collective discussions and the informal gathering in a bucolic environment, with guest filmmakers in person during the whole seminar.

In order to encourage full commitment with the whole weeklong program,
the lineup of films is kept undisclosed. At arrival, participants receive the seminar reader with information about the program and guest filmmakers. Film notes are given only at the end of each screening. Along the week, participants know they will see several works by each  filmmaker and have the opportunity to discuss in an intimate atmosphere.
