The Four Chambered Heart

The film is an experience in between fiction and documentary, which seeks to initiate a debate between two groups of students from the Ivory Cost (a group of white students and a group of black students). The film is an observation of the human behaviour, an presents in-depth thinking about political, social and racial issues.


1975, Oporto, Portugal. Lives and works in Berlin
Filipa César is an artist and filmmaker whose work reflects on the relationship between the moving image and its public reception, or in other words, how it is absorbed by the viewer. Influenced by her interest in exploring the fictional aspects of the documentary genre, and imbued with an urge to pinpoint the politics behind moving images, works such as F for Fake (2005), Rapport (2007), Le Passeur (2008), The Four Chambered Heart (2009), and Memograma (2010) walk the thin line between storytelling, chronicling, documentary and experimental film. César’s installations suggest settings for an expanded production of moving images in which spectators are required to actively engage their powers of perception, and they are made aware if the presence of socio-political concerns. In Filipa César’s work, the imagery evolves from a struggle between real-memory and cinema-memory.
