Born in Porto, in 1975.
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Filipa César is married, has a daughter (12) and a foster son (17).

Filipa César is an artist and filmmaker interested in the fictional aspects of the documentary, the porous borders between cinema and its reception, and the politics and poetics inherent to the moving image and imaging technologies. Since 2011, she has been researching the origins of the cinema of the African Liberation Movement in Guinea Bissau as a laboratory of resistance to ruling epistemologies. The resulting body of work comprises, 16 mm films, digital archives, videos, seminars, screenings, publications, ongoing collaborations with artists, theorists and activists and is the basis for her Phd thesis at FCSH-New University of Lisbon. César’s genre bending work bridges contemporary and historical discourses in her film and video work, as well as in her publications, for example, her essay Meteorizations to be published in the forthcoming Third Text special issue The Wretched Earth: Botanical Conflicts and Artistic Interventions edited by Shela Sheik and Ros Gray.

César premiered her first feature length essay-film Spell Reel at the Forum section of the 67. Berlinale, 2017. Selected exhibitions and screenings have taken place at: 29th São Paulo Biennial, 2010; Manifesta 8, Cartagena, 2010; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, 2011–15; Jeu de Paume, Paris, 2012; Khiasma, Paris, 2011–2015; Kunstwerke, Berlin, 2013; SAAVY Contemporary, Berlin 2014–15; Tensta konsthall, Spånga, 2015; Mumok, Vienna, 2016; Contour 8 Biennial, Mechelen and Gasworks, London; MoMA, New York, 2017.
