Abstract

The following research project wishes to analyze the work of Brazilian filmmaker and documentarist David Perlov, considered the pioneer of Israeli modern cinema and responsible for films with strong biographical and political content. Adopting as a standpoint the intersection between literary theory, cinema studies and psychoanalysis, we will investigate the confessional and the "testimonial content of the culture" (Seligmann-Silva, 2003) in which his work was created, comparing it with autobiographical and essayistic writings and films that create an heterogeneous "biographical space" (Arfuch, 2010). Given the problematic field of autobiographical writings and their interlacement between film language, testimony, memory, subjectivity's critique, and the confessional and testimonial traits of our culture, the project has as its main perspective the investigation of the political subjectification and enunciation modes expressed by the cinematographic diaries of David Perlov. In these diaries, as we intend to discuss, errancy, trauma and exile are figures of a subjective enunciation and narrative in constant movement, for which the displacement, not only geographic, makes the transition from identity to otherness, from the private sphere to politics.
