El presente artículo pretende analizar la práctica cinematográfica del filmeur a través de dos de sus máximos representantes en el espacio francés: Joseph Morder y Alan Cavalier.

La presencia de la materia epistolar en la obra literaria de Marguerite Duras evoluciona desde su definición canónica como medio de comunicación a su progresiva problemati-zación. En Aurélia Steiner (1979) la misiva se convierte en dispositivo de enunciación literaria para materializar su destrucción: el remitente epistolar se convierte en un yo va...

This article aims to carry out an analysis of the spectatorial position as a thinking space for the contemporary essay film based on the comparative study of two Francophone films: Face aux fantômes (Jean-Louis Comolli and Sylvie Lindeperg, (2009) and Jaurès (Vincent Dieutre, 2012). The dialogism of the essay film, the interpellation to the spectat...

Born out of modern cinema, the essay film departed from the dominant forms of fiction and documentary cinema in order to explore an unknown territory defined by subjectivity, hybridization and reflection, evolving to become “a form that thinks,” as Jean-Luc Godard defined it. The final decades of the twentieth century witnessed the consolidation of...

Bertrand Bacqué, Associate Professor at the Haute École d’Art et de Design in Geneva, discusses the work of Pietro Marcello, considered to be one of the most remarkable auteurs of the contemporary essay film and its audiovisual thinking process.

Its dialogic nature and, consequently, the spectator’s role in the film are two crucial issues in the creation and analysis of the essay film. It establishes an I-You relationship between the filmmaker and an individualised, embodied spectator who is interpellated. He/she must participate in the thinking process the film develops in order to comple...

The essay film is defined by its capability to embody an audiovisual thinking process. Chris Marker’s Sans soleil/Sunless (1983) is undoubtedly one of the highest expressions of this filmic form, which reflects on postmodernity through the nature of images. This article aims to analyse the thinking in act of the film, using Jacques Rancière's conce...

The displacement from the essay film to the video installation has in Chris Marker one of its first and most relevant figures. Defining the former as the materialisation of an audiovisual thinking process generated from the filmmaker’s subjectivity, the comparative study of Level Five (1997) and Zapping Zone (1990) allows us to analyse the de/const...

Autofiction as realized in cinematic practice adds a figure of identification to the literary author-narrator-character: that of actor/actress. The filmmaker, playing him/herself, employs innovative strategies in audiovisual narration to generate this autofictional identity. This article analyses these strategies as seen in French cinema, on which...

El presente artículo pretende analizar los textos de Roland Barthes sobre la práctica cinematográfica. Su resistencia al cine, vinculada a su escritura autobiográfica, se revela como la imposibilidad de fetichizar la imagen en movimiento, que debe entonces ser reducida a lo fotográfico, definiendo así un sentido obtuso que opone lo fílmico al cine....

Thus, a previous work is the cause of an essay film that aims to reflect on the cinematic practice carried out. This article aims to analyse the use, function, and evolution of this device in the beginning and consolidation of the Godard...

In this way...

La obra literaria de Yves Navarre es una de las máximas representantes del uso de la materia epistolar en la literatura francesa de la posmodernidad.

This article offers an analysis of the common characteristics of two foundational experiences in a new contemporary cinema that challenged the postmodern audiovisual hegemony of the early nineties: Close-Up (1990) and Dream of Light (1992).

The present article analyses the film Agatha and the Limitless Readings (1981) by Marguerite Duras as the final experience, together with The Atlantic Man (1981), of the so-called Durasian literary-cinematic coalescence, which began a decade earlier with Woman of the Ganges (1972). The fusion of both practices, born from the need to turn the litera...

ABSTRACT The present article aims to show how the consolidation of the cinematic form of the essay film in Jean-Luc Godard’s work is a consequence of the evolution of his experience in the cinéma militant, which emerges from the political and social circumstances that caused May 68. In the case of the filmmaker it is materialised through his partic...

Project
This challenging and ambitious research project aims to analyse the enunciative devices of the European francophone essay film in order to determine the audiovisual procedures that materialise the expression of subjectivity, the thinking process and self-reflexiveness, which define this stimulating filmic form. Starting from the concept of francophony, and through an innovative interdisciplinary and intermedial approach that relates cinema to philosophy, semiotics to aesthetics and cinema history to cultural and gender studies, the research will establish firstly a typology of the different enunciative devices: audiovisual materials, intermedial forms and filmic procedures. Secondly, the research will analyse the relationship between them and the themes addressed by the essay films and the artistic movements they belong to, since its birth in modern cinema to the very present, in which this essayistic practice has known a great proliferation due to the digital revolution, facilitating the experience of subjectivity and intimacy of this filmic form. Thirdly, the research will determine the functionality of the different enunciative devices, exploring how identity –individual, social, political, gender, artistic– thinks through cinema. The EDEF proposal, considering the essay film as a social, political and artistic developer that fosters society’s critical thinking, will also analyse the function of the spectator in this dialogic filmic form. The project includes a dissemination plan and a communication strategy that will ensure the spread of the research results to both the widest scientific community and the largest general public, following the guidelines of the fully open-access policy of Horizon 2020. The principal output will be a scholarly monograph with a prestigious international publisher. Thus, the EDEF proposal will contribute concretely to European excellence in Film Studies and to the creation of a common, current and widespread European culture.
