Modern Times Review @ MDOC - Melgaço International Documentary Film Festival
Since 2014, MDOC-International Documentary Festival of Melgaço has been focusing on a unique event. Recognized inside and outside of Portugal. MDOC focuses on three anchor axes for reflection – border, memory and identity, always dealing with the issues of migration and the displacement of human beings. Founded in a predominantly rural environment, MDOC dialogues with the territory and questions local communities about their memories and the future that emerges from an increasingly globalized world. And it does so through the project Who are we here?
MDOC – Melgaço International Documentary Film Festival will commence from 1 to 7 August.
