Mulheres da Retomada: Film Festival and Conference

February 16th, 2011 - February 18th, 2011

Location
Tulane University

Conference organizers:

Ana M. López (Tulane University) and Rebecca Atencio (Tulane University)

As the capstone of a year-long film series devoted to the work of Brazilian woman filmmakers, this conference will gather filmmakers and an international cadre of film critics and scholars to engage in a broad conversation about Brazilian women filmmaking today.

After the 1990 dismantling of state support for filmmaking in Brazil, the vacuum created in the national cinema ended up an unexpected fertile ground for the emergence of a new generation of women filmmakers and for the continued activities of filmmakers from the 1980s who were able to take advantage of new federal and state initiatives (post 1992-95) in support of cultural production.

Mulheres da Retomada will focus on this body of films and on its place in contemporary Brazilian cinema and society. It is framed by the following questions:

  • What difference does it make when a Brazilian woman wields the camera?
  • How do woman filmmakers theorize about their experiences in the world and their practice?
  • What are the relationships among questions of gender, race, and class in Brazilian film?
  • Can feminist theory make a contribution to film practice in Brazil?

This program is generously funded by the Newcomb College Memorial Institute, the Silverstein Fund for Film Studies (Communication Department), and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University.
