Occupy with cinema – writing the history of urban struggles in Ressurgentes – um filme de ação direta

posted on 26.12.2018 by Vinícius Andrade de Oliveira

Abstract The article analyses the retaking of archives of about 10 years of urban struggles conducted by autonomous movements of Brasília and its articulation through the editing in the documentary Ressurgentes – um filme de ação direta. We are interested in pointing out how the association of these heterogeneous archives with the testimonies of militants beget a peculiar writing of the history of urban problems experienced in Brasilia in the last decade and their possible relations to common events to other cities, such as June’s 2013 manifestations.
