The projections and conversations will take place on ZDB's terrace, respecting the safety distances established by DGS.

ZDB presents a cinema cycle on the terrace, every Monday of May, at 21h, with programming by Laura Gama Martins.

gestos is a cinema cycle programmed around the representation of the body and its movement, as a form of expression and dialogue of the human being. The translation of states of being and of spirit, of the possible forms of dialogue in cinema, through the choreography of the bodies.
The main objective of this cycle is to bring back to the table, to the terrace, to the bar counter, the dialogue around films, the sharing of sensations, intuitions, desires and thoughts aroused by the secret language of cinema.
Taking the place of main curator of the cycle, I propose to extend the invitation to four people involved with different artistic forms in which the body and the gesture can take an essential dimension – cinema, theatre, dance. They are given the freedom to choose a film or set of films that respond to the premise that was first established. The films will dialogue and interconnect with the mother proposal.
Accompanying each session, there will be a room sheet, written by its guest, in communion with the curator of the same.’
