Sure, Lisbon is a beautiful city, rich in heritage, historic and contemporary architecture and beautiful views from the seven hills. Yet, Lisbon is also the home of an ever-increasing migrant population. Diverse cultures can be observed at all times of day in all parts of the city. Documentary film director Jose Manuel de S. Lopes finds beauty and fascination in this often overlooked facet of Lisbon urban life. His recent film, Lisboa Mestiça: O Casamento da Dipa (“Mixed Lisbon: The Marriage of Dipa) examines one of the micro-stories playing out in the city.

The premier of Lisboa Mestiça: O Casamento da Dipa is Tuesday, 10 November at 21:30 at Cinema São Jorge in Lisbon.

According to S. Lopes, “…a fifth of the population in Lisbon are legal immigrants. If one was to include illegal immigrants, this percentage would swell considerably. However the interrelationship between the host community and immigrant communities is most often zero, if not tense. The economic crisis begins to cause a growing xenophobia and an increased fragility that immigrant communities must endure. All the while, the natural growth rate in Portugal has stalled, meaning the country’s population growth in increasingly dependent on these same immigrant communities.”
