The research proposed aims to analyze the aesthetic and ideological representations in the practice of documentary in the New Latin American Cinema, between the years 1968 and 1978, from the looks of three filmmakers: Raymundo Gleyzer (Argentina), Geraldo Sarno (Brazil) and Santiago Alvarez (Cuba). For this, we will establish parallels between the practice of the achievements of these filmmakers and theoretical positions espoused in manifestos film produced in these countries, as well as examine the voices of discursive production, which, in this period, enunciated the cinema as a tool of social transformation in Latin America . Furthermore, we will investigate not only the whole of the works, but the whole process of production (filming to distribution), a key element for understanding the political cinema of that time, as these filmmakers acted as a rule outside the commercial circuit display. Finally, we will inquire how the documentary can be a historical narrative. In short, we intend to further study the production of documents in the New Latin American Cinema NCLA, seeking interactions between theory and practice, film and history and the meanings of these documentary productions for this moment in history, politics and culture in Latin America.
