“Remember, you are biodegradable too.”
That’s food for thought. That’s also the slogan for The Political Festival 2020, which hits Cinema São Jorge this weekend. It brings with it films, debates, performances, comedy, and more, with the environment, and especially the environment in Brazil, being its main theme.
Here’s how the organizers describe it:
“With climate change at the center of the demands of young people, and with public and economic authorities increasingly under pressure to change their policies in favor of more sustainable development, the festival will pay special attention to the role of citizens as transforming agents, without ignoring the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having worldwide.”
See the full program here, and go be a transforming agent.
The festival also officially opens the Lisboa na Rua 2020 program; more on that soon.
*Tickets at the Cinema São Jorge box office, on the same day, starting at 16h.
**As part of the national effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the capacity of the Cinema São Jorge rooms is limited. The use of a mask is mandatory. See all the rules and recommendations here.
