Six black friends from different places on the outskirts of Lisbon – Porto Brandão and Cacém – decide to travel to the Centro Cultural de Belém to watch a show. Observing each of their journeys in turn, we discover what they think and feel as they make their way to the city – or Lisa, as they call it. A reflection on the centre and the periphery, blacks and whites, racism and inclusion.
Between the various sessions, there will be different talks in the Small Auditorium , discussing and enlarging upon the various problematics underlying the filming of this Pele Escura (Dark Skin).
