BVC – “Benches of Vision over the City” – is a project of urban cultural intervention. Through the organization of cultural cicles and having the typical Lisbon “bench” as prime reference, BVC assumes itself as a platform of exploration and reflection about the city where it is integrated. Developed as an academic project, its main focus was to let people who inhabit Lisbon know their city a little bit better. The project presented is a model for a cycle to be organized regarding 7 movies representing 7 geographies of the city Lisbon (Portugal). The movies selected are all iconic and historically important movies that depict Lisbon in a very particular way, letting us look back at the city with that new “vision” of it. The movies would be projected “in site”, on the buildings that are depicted in the movies.
