Filipa César

Filipa César is an artist and filmmaker interested in the porous boundaries between the moving image and
its public reception, the fictional aspects of the documentary praxis and the economies, politics and poetics inherent to the production of moving images. Between 2008-10, great part of César’s experimental films have focussed on Portugal’s geo-political past, questioning mechanisms of history production and proposing spaces for performing subjective knowledge. Since 2011, César has been researching the origins of cinema in Guinea-Bissau, its imaginaries and potencies, developing that research into the collective project Luta ca caba inda (the struggle is not over yet). She was a participant in the research projects Living Archive (2011-13) and Visionary Archive (2013-15) both organised by the Arsenal Institute,
