Sessão de cinema

Narrative and visual representations of death, as raw material for cinematographic creation, can be seen as symptoms of our culture and of the way we interact with the world and with others. The body appears as a material object and an irrefutable proof of our finitude, but also as a support and extension of our life. In the second screening of the films produced under the class “Death and Documentary”, the body becomes a core element, an object of study, producer of movement and support of social conventions. The filmmakers pursue ways to approach and represent the body - alive or dead - as an aestheticized space that exists as a vital element and “visual silence”. The body thus becomes an object of mediated contemplation, like poetic elegies. In this presentation, through film, the body is transformed and fixed as an art object.
