Reviewing, twisting, reversing and resuming images: film communities and cosmopolitics
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Abstract This paper observes communities of spectators in its actual appearance in films directed by (or in co-authorship with) indigenous groups. Indeed, this production (particularly within Video in the Villages project) shows that beyond of a method or procedure, exhibiting films for a unique community assumes the statute of a dispositive, which has not only cinematic implications but also cosmopolitical ones. In movies such as A arca dos Z’oé (1993), De volta à terra boa (2008), Pirinop – meu primeiro contato (2007), Tava – casa de pedra (2012) e Pele de branco (2012), “communities of cinema” are formed, integrating the mise-en-scène and forging a complex image, in which the group recognizes itself at discrepancy delaying.
