Cinema, Slavery, and Brazilian Nationalism

Date: 
09/09/2015 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Location: 
Niles Gallery
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Dr. Richard Gordon

By studying Brazilian films released between 1976 and 2005, Gordon examines how the films both define the national community and influence viewer understandings of "Brazilianness." Though the films he examines span decades, they all communicate their revised version of Brazilian national identity through a cinematic strategy with a dual aim: to upset ingrained ways of thinking about Brazil and to persuade those who watch the films to accept a new way of understanding their national community.
