Auto/rappresentazioni: la messa in forma del sé nel film di famiglia
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Is it possible to conceive home movies as a form of self-representation? How is individual expression mediated with the mandate of the family as institution? The making of home movies enables the person behind the camera to say something about him/herself, about his/her world, life, and affections. The film diaries of Jonas Mekas, in their proximity to private films of the family type, thus make it possible to emphasize us convergence between the record of familiar everyday life and the positioning of a personal and exclusive look at it. The search for the mode of expression and representation of the self thus involves all practices of inscription of one’s own image in the course of the filming (self-portraits), of images of other people (family portraits) and, residually, of any trace that, by attesting the presence of the body of the operator, presents itself as a sign of subjectivization of the familial filmic text. In this double tension between the filming oneself and films others, the paper seeks to explore the peculiarity of the authorial impulse and the process of imaging oneself through the mechanism of amateur film-making.
