Filipa César is an artist and filmmaker interested in the porous relationship between the moving image and its public reception, the fictional aspects of the documentary and the 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 recent past, questioning mechanisms of history production and proposing spaces for performing subjective knowledge. Since 2011, César has been investigating the conditions and origins of film in Guinea-Bissau and its related geo-political radiance, developing that research into the project Luta ca caba inda.
She is was a participant of the research projects "Living Archive, 2011-13" and "Visionary Archive, 2013-15“ organized by the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art, Berlin. Selected Film Festivals include Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, 2013; Forum Expanded - Berlinale, 2013; IFFR, Rotterdam, 2010, 2013 and 2015; Indie Lisboa, 2010; DocLisboa, 2011.
