In addition to the course Documentary History in Lisbon, this class focuses on documentary film from the 1970s until the present. Attention is paid to a wide area of topics, styles and formats.

Classes focus on the screening of a selection of films acclaimed as essential references in the tradition of documentary making. Further analysis intends to provide an understanding of the context of the periods in which the films were produced by examining correlated cultural, social, artistic and technical influences. 

Organised around lectures, screenings and discussions, the course topics are contextualised and put in perspective through preparatory reading of academic literature and through personal research.
