arsenal 3 in January

The program of our virtual cinema arsenal 3 makes direct reference to the activities carried out by our institution: the program of the Arsenal 1 & 2 cinemas , the titles that form part of our arsenal distribution range, or our Living Archive archival practice, which is rooted in both participation and production. In January we will show two programs: the films by Philip Scheffner and program dealing with the the National Film Institute of Guinea-Bissau (INCA – Instituto Nacional de Cinema e Audiovisual).
