Irrelevant Archive. The Struggle Is Not Over Yet

What are the present and future of our past? How do the struggles of other times echo in the present? The Portuguese artist and filmmaker Filipa César offers some answers to these questions. Rescuing from oblivion the film archive that testifies to the birth of cinema in Guinea-Bissau and the decolonising vision of the revolutionary leader Amilcar Cabral, her work turns this past into a prism through which to view and ponder the conditions of the present.
