Participants working on the films

Cultural Influence(s) in Viana

To reflect on the colonial past, and its legacy today, the partners of the bilateral exchange team up with local instituions to create film projects over the context of the portuguese colonial war.

The first projects are filmed during the "portuguese week", in Viana do Castelo, and the focus is made on the colonial past itself. The colonial war is a relatively recent event and ther are still abundance of possible subjects places and people to shoot documentary projects on it.

For 5 days, dutch and portuguese participants adress colonialism from the perspective of the coloniser, and refkect on the devastating consequences of that system and its problematic legacy. The films focus on the war period and include locals of Viana as film subjects.

Five movies will result from this first phase, soon available on this page of our website!
