IberoDocs Festival Glasgow

About IberoDocs Festival Glasgow

Ibero-America refers to a geographic area that includes Latin American countries as well as Spain and Portugal.

IberoDocs brings to Edinburgh and Scotland the most significant productions from Ibero-American culture in a festival that is as distinctive as it is unique.

The Festival was founded in 2013 by Mar Felices and Xosé Ramón Rivas, with the support of Isabel Moura Mendes.

Our mission is to celebrate the culture and history of Ibero-American countries through documentary films, by establishing an annual event in Scotland that facilitates the understanding of migration and stimulates cultural and social integration.

Jonas and the Backyard Circus - (Jonas e o Circo sem Lona)
4th May 7.30pm
Jonas is a 13 years old boy and the dream of his life is to maintain the circus that he created in his backyard. Born in a travelling circus, his family decided some years ago to leave it behind and to settle down in a violent neighborhood on the outskirts of Salvador, in the North of Brazil.

Jonas never was adjusted to the new lifestyle, so he created his own circus, a real one, in his backyard. But, to maintain it s is getting harder and harder. Jonas is growing up and adolescence imposes upon him mercilessly with thousands of new challenges.

So, what do we do with our dreams when we grow up?

The screening will be followed by a workshop on Afro-Brazilian dances by Andrea Ewerton and also a workshop on Physical Expression through music by Liliana Fonseca.

Sanã
5th May 1.30pm
In the Lençóis Island, located in the state of Maranhão (Brazil), Sanã, an albino boy, lives surrounded by land in all parties. In an environment with many dunes and virtually no shade, he has nowhere to escape.

​A small body lost in the immensity of the place, which almost mimics the white landscape it inhabits. The ponds fill and dry according to the seasons. The tides moving throughout the day. The transience, the sun, the wind, the sand... Sanã explores this microcosm, and there builds its private universe. The boy and the landscape. Life exposed to sun and wind.

Artemio
5th May 1.30pm
Artemio was born in U.S.A. Now he lives in a small town in Guerrero with his mother and his new family.

Despite his roots in Mexico, he still doesn’t feel like a part of it. Together, they will show us a reality where the distance from those they left behind will come to life in every phone call.

Director Sandra Luz López Barroso will be with us for a Skype Q&A after the film.

Las niñas de Uchitu'u
5th May 3.30pm
Between the fine desert dust and the vast Caribbean Sea, runs the daily lives of Sonia and Yelitza, two Wayuu girls, that grow in the midst of the ancient traditions of their native community and the presence of practices that the white foreigners have brought, putting at risk the preservation of the ancestral culture.

Cama de Gato
5th May 3.30pm
When we first met Joana she seemed a ceramic doll, small, fragile, with a ribbon on her head. Slowly she started to deconstruct herself, revealing a charming complexity. The duality between strength and fragility, freedom and imprisonment, joy and sadness... completely overwhelmed us. The intimacy and complicity raised between us allowed us to fictionalize her life, and make this special, unclassifiable film.

Prîara Jô, Depois do Ovo, a Guerra
5th May 5.30pm
The Panará children present their universe on a day of childhood play in the village. The time of the war is over, but it is still alive in the children’s imagination.

After Saturday’s screening we invite all ticketholders to celebrate the closing of IberoDocs 2018 with a reception at CCA’s Saramago café.

Everyone in Hawaii Has a 6-pack Already
5th May 5.30pm
Teenagers lie in the black, warm sand, the soft glowing backlight of the deep sun makes them look beautiful. They horse around like children, flirt and chat about future plans. Barely grown together as a group of individuals they will be torn apart next summer. They are forced to leave their home in the Atlantic Ocean, La Gomera, the second smallest island of the Canaries. This clique will be split up across the archipelago and Europe, some of them have German, English or Italian roots. Experiences turning into memories. Identities in the making.

Director Marvin Hesse will be with us for a Q&A after the film.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for IberoDocs Festival Glasgow are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
