Rurality and rural life from the perspective of Brazilian cinema of the 2000s


This project proposes to study the rural representation made by Brazilian cinema in the first decade of this new century, when the urbanity - at least, according to the geographical-spatial point of view - is considered absolutely hegemonic in Brazil. As we had investigated the cinematographic perspective about the Brazilian rural since 1950, we could evidence that at this decisive moment of transition, from the agrarian to the urban-industrial country, there was in the collective social thought - expressed through the cinema - a world to be overcome. It was a subjacent thesis, even in the best and most politicized film expressions. Posterior researches showed that rural would still be a difficult component of our insecure modernity. At the present time, in a period of advanced capitalism, national insertion in the global market, hyperdimensionalyzed cities, with issues of equal proportions, what apprehension does the national cinema of the 2000s make of Brazilian rural?
