Diáspora e experiencia migratoria desde a proposta anovadora dun Novo Cine Galego
Emigration as a life experience, but also as nostalgia and a wound, conforms the semantic universe of two films that aim to find a representation of the untold: the life-changing voyages, the expression of hidden feelings, the lessons of time. This is the proposal of Vickingland (Xurxo Chirro, 2011) and A cicatriz branca (Margarita Ledo, 2013), two films which, with some reservations in the case of Ledo’s, are included in the self-proclaimed New Galician Cinema, a recent audiovisual phenomenon that tries to get into the contemporary cinema waves. This paper puts forward an analysis of a documentary and a fiction –in and individual and comparative overview– that allow a reading in several layers of content. A similar story of the Galician diáspora but in divergent models that face distant coordinates: the epic breath that inspires the routine discourse of Vickingland, and the representation of the emotional wound through the play with body-language in A cicatriz branca.
