A cinema cycle under the theme Borders is taking place in Lisbon, at Casa da Achada – Mário Dionísio Centre, until September 29.

Between July and September, a total of 15 films will be exhibited. “Almost all the films are fiction films from different countries, presenting difficulties related do crossing a border (and being held there); World War II borders; borders on ground and underground; [as well as] often related racism and xenophobia,” the organisers say at Centro Mário Dionísio’s official website.

All films will be exhibited outdoors, at Rua da Achada, and presented by a guest. Screenings are scheduled for Mondays, at 9.30 pm. Admission is free.
