The Audiovisual Studies Research Group presents the book “A foresta e as árbores”
NUMAX bookshop will host the event on 16th of May
On 16th of May at 20.00 hours the NUMAX bookshop will host the presentation of the book A foresta e as árbores. Para unha historia do cinema en lingua galega (2) [The forest and the trees. For a history of the galician language cinema], edited by the Audiovisual Studies Research Group and the Editorial Galaxia under the coordination of Margarita Ledo Andión.
A forest and the trees, second volume of the series Para unha historia do cinema en lingua galega, builds, from the singular gaze of the eight researchers that participate in the book, a thematic itinerary to enter into the most recent Galician cinema. In the sample of analized films, also a reflection of the diversity in the Galician cinematography of the last decades, we advance from the duel for a world that fades to the veiled —what is not spoken— in our history; from desire and its drifts to the need to film the intimate and ourselves.
The coordinator of the book and professor in Audiovisual Communication, Margarita Ledo Andión, will intervene in the act and the authors of the volume will be present: Marta Pérez Pereiro, María Soliña Barreiro, Antía López Gómez, Fernando Redondo Neira, José Luis Castro de Paz, Enrique Castelló Mayo, Xosé Nogueira Otero and Iván Villarmea Álvarez.
«Sobordando tópicos, este é un libro no que as árbores deixan ver a foresta, a foresta prata, talvez de bidueiros. Este é un libro que nos pon nas mans un catálogo de filmes que revelan, para alén dos motivos, a posibilidade dunha cinematografía diversa: nas súas propostas estéticas, na proximidade ou no afastamento radical das regras que definen os chamados “xéneros”, na concreción dun modo de pensar o cinema que, paso a paso, se sente parte dunha tradición que relatamos e puntuamos no volume 1, en Marcas na paisaxe».
We are looking forward to meeting you there!
