Video Essay and Seminar by Amanda Mansur Nogueira, University of Reading/Federal University of Pernambuco.

Tuesday 11 June 2019, 4.30pm
Studio Space, Minghella Building, University of Reading.
Film production in Pernambuco, in the Northeastern Region of Brazil, grew out of the effervescent music scene of the 1990s. Pernambucan cinema has appropriated the music of the Manguebeat as a synesthetic experience and transmedia experience. Based on the methodology of intermedia analysis, the aim of this seminar is to identify stylistic marks stemming from the relationship between music and film in contemporary Pernambucan cinema.
What is the impact of the Manguebeat musical movement in the revival of film production in Pernambuco? How does the music define the choice of camera angles, the performance of the characters, the editing? Additionally, how does the music articulate the narrative of the movies? It is with the intention of discussing such issues that we propose this seminar and the presentation of a video essay.
