9780708325988: The Brazilian Road Movie: Journeys of (Self) Discovery (University of Wales - Iberian and Latin American Studies)

The Brazilian Road Movie explores some of the key trends and films in the development of the road movie in Brazil. A collection of essays by distinguished scholars, covering a broad range of case studies, this text spans Brazilian film production from the silent era to the present day. Contributors examine such issues as the reworking of the genre in a Brazilian context and the relationships between documentary and fiction; history, politics, and cinema; gender and race; the wilderness and the urban space; and the national and the transnational. As a whole, the volume sheds light on the significance of the journey and the experience of life on the road as represented in Brazilian cinema.

About the Author:

Sara Brandellero is a lecturer in Brazilian studies at Leiden University, the Netherlands. Her numerous publications include On a Knife-Edge: The Poetry of João Cabral de Melo Neto.

Review:

“Brandellero succeeds in showcasing the notable range of road narratives in Brazilian cinema, from the silent era to the contemporary period. . . . All essays are clearly organized, well researched, and written in readable prose. . . . Recommended.” (D. West, University of Idaho Choice)

“This valuable addition to the existing bibliography in English on Brazilian cinema takes a fresh perspective by exploring how the road movie genre, intimately associated with Hollywood film, has been adapted and reworked by Brazilian filmmakers. Its strength lies in the diversity of works analyzed and the variety of approaches adopted by a range of both established and up-and-coming scholars.” (Lisa Shaw, University of Liverpool)
