Ciclo Habitação took place from June 22nd to August 24th, featuring weekly film sessions every Thursday in both Porto and Lisbon. Each session took place in a different local space, granting us a unique opportunity to connect with local communities and grasp the extensive impact of the housing crisis.
It was not only about watching films, the cycle served as a platform for critical reflection and dialogue about housing.
I was very happy to accept the invitation from Pedro Maia @gavinamaia and Filmes do Gerador @filmesdogerador to design the visual identity for this amazing project. Pedro brought together a diverse group of collaborators who shared a deep passion for the initiative and a genuine commitment for the project. I was privileged enough to be part of this team.
Both Porto and Lisbon have undergone rapid transformations with escalating rents, gentrification, and a lack of protective policies for local residents. Ciclo Habitação became a platform for us to engage with these challenges while enjoying exceptional films. It was a truly enriching experience and a reminder of the significance to create spaces for such essential discussions.
