Beschreibungen

This collection explores the emergence of new spatialities and subjectivities in Brazilian films produced from the 1990s onwards, a period that became known as the retomada, but especially in the cinema of the new millennium. The chapters take spatiality as a powerful tool that can reveal aesthetic, political, social, and historical meanings of the cinematographic image instead of considering space as just a formal element of a film. From the rich cross-fertilization of different theories and disciplines, this edited collection engages with the connection between space and subjectivity in Brazilian cinema while raising new questions concerning spatiality and subjectivity in cinema and providing new models and tools for film analysis.

Provides unique analyses that shape understandings of spatiality as a powerful condition of cinema that can reveal aesthetic, political, social, and historical meanings of the cinematographic image

Brings together scholars with approaches that connect to Brazilian Studies, Film Studies, Latin American Studies, Architecture, Cultural Geography, Urban studies, Visual and Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, and more

Offers research that includes, but goes beyond, discussion of favelas (slums) and the sertão (‘backlands’), thus broadening the set of spatial practices and experiences, and the roles of cinematic spaces in the construction of subjectivities in the discussed films
“The organization of this book constitutes a sophisticated understanding of the principles of film as significant cultural production in contemporary Brazil and very much a privileged domain of contemporary Brazilian art. It provides a comprehensive multi-authored volume of essays contemporary Brazilian filmmaking, focused on the point of view of space and subjectivity. It is an excellent book.” (David William Foster, Regents’ Professor of Spanish and Women and Gender Studies, Arizona State University, USA)
