FILM | “Another Lisbon Story” Screening + Talk with Claudio Carbone | Alcântara | FREE
July 18, 2018 @ 18:30 - 21:00Free
Talk to most any local in Lisbon and they will tell you that housing is a serious problem.
Venture a little outside of the Lisbon airport and you will find Bairro da Torre, a community of a few hundred people — men, women, children, the elderly, people with disabilities and with serious health problems — living in a makeshift neighborhood of favela-like homes, with no sewage system, with little available light, heat or water, next to an open dump which attracts rats, snakes and other pests.
So, not exactly Rua Augusta.
Another Lisbon Story is a documentary that takes us inside this seldom-thought-of part of town, a reminder that out of sight is not always out of mind. It is being presented, along with a talk by director Claudio Carbone, free of charge and with English subtitles, Wednesday at the Impact Hub.
