“A Foresta e as árbores” arrives to Vigo
Cartabón bookshop will host the presentation of GEA's last publication on 10th of July
The Audiovisual Studies Research Group will present in Vigo its last publication, A foresta e as árbores. Para unha historia do cinema en lingua galega (2). The event will take place on next Wednesday 10th of July at 20:30h in the Cartabón bookshop with the participation of Franciso Castro, director of Galaxia, as well as two of the book’s authors, Marta Pérez Pereiro and Xosé Nogueira.
The volume continues the study that was begun by Marcas na Paisaxe. Para unha historia do cinema en lingua galega (I), both texts linked to the R+D+i project “EUVOS. Intangible Cultural Heritage. For a European Programme for Subtitling in Non-Hegemonic languages”. Edited under the coordination of Margarita Ledo Andión, professor of Audiovisual Communication, the book creates, from the gaze of the eight participant researchers, a thematic itinerary to understand current Galician cinema.

Filmar o dó, filmar o velado, filmar o traballo, filmar a ollada, filmar a pantasma, filmar a tribo, filmar as pulsións canda o fóra de campo son as estacións que amplían esta viaxe que quereriamos longa e frutífera».
«Prefacio». Margarita Ledo Andión
