This year, in the Open Air Auditorium, viewers will be able to watch a film series that has rarely been screened in Portugal. The series is, in a way, a continuation of a debate on Science Fiction in Africa and Latin America held last May as part of the Observatory on Other Literatures. Classic and contemporary sci-fi films will be screened from various African and Latin American countries, where a tradition of this genre exists that is completely unknown in Portugal. While these short, mid-length and feature-length films follow certain sci-fi conventions, their themes, the kinds of characters portrayed and the scenarios in which they take place are highly unique. This series is guaranteed to be a true cinematic revelation.
