Audio-visual, history and preservation: the role of the Brazilian cinema and television newsreels in the construction of the memory (1946-1974)


This thematic project "Audio-Visual, History and Preservation: the role of the Brazilian cinema and television newsreels in the construction of the memory (1946 - 1974)" will examine, in the democratic period and the civil-military dictatorship in Brazil, the representations of historical events and social groups, the imaginary and their recurring cultural and political discourses, from the following corpus: Cine Jornal Informativo collection (1946-1954), the newsreels of the Fundo Atlântida (1955-1974) and the Fundo Canal 100 (1959-1974), and the television newsreels shown by TV Tupi (Fundo Tupi, 1950-1974), documentation placed at Cinemateca Brasileira (CB). The Project is organized in two main thematic axis: audio-visual and history; and audio-visual preservation, a key step without which the project will not be accomplished as it implies in the preservation of audio-visual materials, with actions that involve their recovery and access. Transdisciplinary in nature, it mobilizes researchers from different theoretical fields. The proposal is part of the international project IRP/CNRS Archives-Médias-Images-Sociétés [AMIS], coordinated in France by Isabelle Gaillard with the collaboration of Evelyne Cohen, from the Laboratoire de recherches historiques Rhône-Alpes (LARHRA, UMR CNRS 5190, Université de Lyon), and Itania Gomes (UFBA). It participates in a network of research groups formed, among others, by "História e Audiovisual: circularidades e comunicação" (CNPq) and "Grupo de Estudos de Linguagem e Práticas Midiáticas: Midiato" (CNPq).
