Filipa César (Porto, 1975) is an artist and filmmaker interested in the porous boundaries between the moving image and its reception, the fictional dimensions of the documentary and the economies, politics and poetics inherent to cinema praxis. Since 2011, César has been researching the origins of cinema in Guinea-Bissau, developing that research into the collective project Luta ca caba inda (The struggle is not over yet). She was a participant of the research projects Living Archive and Visionary Archive, both organised by the Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art, Berlin.
