Short Abstract:

In Portuguese-speaking cinemas, the idea of periphery(ies) has been present and discussed in different directions. From case studies of deveral Portuguese-speaking cinemas, we intend to discuss the situation of reconfiguration in context of new paradigms and modes of production.

Long Abstract

The panel intends to bring together researchers from different countries and scientific areas with common interests, who wanted to think together, among other things, a series of questions: case studies and theoretical possibilities regarding the transnational film field with a view to deepening the density of the concept of periphery and the mode of production in peripheral areas; formal and informal structures of film production, distribution or exhibition, where are exposed some tensions between urban authority and traditional rural entities; contribute to the analysis of anti-colonial and post-colonial cinema in the light of the relationships between modernism and primitivism; rethink the dialectics between emancipation and regulation in the film sphere through methodological interdisciplinary tools which make the canonical aesthetic-formal and historic-political approaches more complex; rethink nostalgia as a category that affects both "retornados" and people in Mozambique that experienced the time of the colonial regime.
