CAM in Motion: «War Correspondent», by Maria Lusitano

Film Cycle «A Peace That There Isn’t»

Event Slider

Quoting a verse by Fernando Pessoa (in the poem Montes, e a paz que há neles, pois são longe), the title of this season allows us to emphasise the simplicity of a purpose that is, after all, so difficult to maintain. The value of peace, which we considered a lasting achievement of the so-called civilised world, cyclically becomes a mirage.  

In these three films from CAM’s collection contexts and evocations of war, power and colonisation are approached in very diverse ways, from the point of view of the cultural and media narratives built upon them. 

War Correspondent (2010), by Maria Lusitano, is a reflection on the images of war in the media and the entertainment industry. 


CAM in Motion is an ‘outdoor’ programme that brings together a series of site-specific interventions by artists and exhibitions with works from the Collection in different spaces in the city of Lisbon and its surroundings. More info
