City One Minutes Lisbon

City One Minutes Lisbon (2009) makes part of the project City One Minutes, initiated and managed by The One Minutes Foundation and Holland Doc 24 (VPRO).

The concept of City One Minutes is to portrait a city with 24 one minute videos. Each one minute video depicts one hour of the day, giving a program of 24 minutes, displaying a whole day cycle of respectively 24 hours.

Paula Albuquerque and me organized, produced and curated the City One Minutes Lisbon in collaboration and friendly support of The One Minutes Foundation. We invited artists in Lisbon and abroad to contribute with personal impressions of the city. We then made a compilation of the most intriguing movies and joined in own work. The compilation was handed over to the City One Minutes organization as a proposal:
