CSWG Film Screening & discussion '3 Hours to Love'

- Export as iCalendar
Location: Zoom

3 Hours to Love follows four intersecting stories about women who reflect on their circumstances inside the Special Prison Facility of Santa Cruz do Bispo, Portugal, where time is set by the daily routines.

As we emerge from lockdown, this might invite reconsiderations of social isolation, time, and incarceration, and on the role of imprisonment in society. We will screen the film via zoom with time for discussion and comments afterwards, which may include themes about the marking of time in prison, emotional and physical isolation, communication, and family structures, and the role of imprisonment. 

The film’s director, Patrícia Nogueira, will be joining us to discuss the making of the film and its connection to isolation during lockdown. Patrícia Nogueira is a Portuguese documentary filmmaker, producing and directing her own documentaries and working regularly in other directors’ films, both documentary and fiction. Documentary was the way she chose to express herself about the surrounding world and her inner concerns. She likes to deeply know people, try to understand them, create a relationship and give them a voice. In her first feature documentary, 3 Hours to Love, Patricia pursues her favourite topic and tries to engage audiences through women’s emotions and sexuality. She usually says, “It’s a feminine film from a feminine point of view.” The film won the award for Best Documentary at Viana do Castelo Cinema Meetings (2013) and was officially selected for DocLisboa (2013), Cine Las Americas (2014), FEST (2014), and Berlin Feminist Film Week (2015).
