CIAC PRESENT AT THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CINEMA
On April, 7, at 11am, CIAC collaborator Renato Essenfelder participates in the international conference On Cinema. The event is organised by the Film Studies research group of the Arnaldo Araújo Study Centre and takes place at the Oporto Higher Artistic School, between April 6 and 8.
“Memory and psychomagic in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s cinema” is the title of Renato Essenfelder’s paper. His paper discusses the appropriation that the Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky makes of the concept of memory by transforming his cineautobiography La Danza de La Realidad into an act of “psychomagic”, a term that the filmmaker coined to designate “a curative performative practice”.
On Cinema seeks to reflect on different issues related to cinema, television and multimedia, namely: digital cinema and film aesthetics; the relationship of cinema with reality, representation, television and philosophy; the construction of subjectivity through the singularity of spaces and sounds; costume as heritage; audiovisual translation; among others.
