There remains something of everything - cinema, literature and landscape
A discussion about the possible interrelationship between cinema, literature and landscape. The search for how to depict the "spirit of place”, comprised of a topology of the things and people in a space and time; the hardships both visible and hidden in the landscape, and the fictions that inhabit it. From a project already under way, Marília Rocha proposes having a conversation about how cinema can depict the landscape and its social histories, recognizing its role as an integral part of the process of literary creation. The residue of each universe that gets left in the other, that which remains and does not get erased in spaces and texts, and our presence in the world.
Marília Rocha lives in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She made the films Aboio (2005), A falta que me faz (2010) and A cidade onde envelheço (2017). Retrospectives of her work have been held at the Visions du Réel Festival in Switzerland, The Ourense International Film Festival in Galicia and the Semana dos Realizadores in Río de Janeiro.
