Article / The Thinking Image. Towards a Definition of the Film- Essay

Abstract /

This article examines the key features –historical, rethorical and related to genre– that characterizes one kind of audiovisual text with scarce cinematographic tradition. The filmessay proposes a personal and nonsystematic discourse, using different tools: a personal style, a visible editing that privileges the word, or the filmic presence of the author. In this way, the film essayist builds its reflection inside the images, putting forward his/her way of thinking.

Keywords /

Film-essay, Essay, Cinema, Documentary, Boundaries, Fiction, Factuality
