The film series Invention & Subversion is part of the project Entre Pindorama by Künstlerhaus and is presented in collaboration with Communal Cinema Stuttgart. Organized by Ronna Giorgio.
The selected films represent an overview of filmic innovations, respresentations of outsiders and the difficult political situation in Brazil. The films are presented in chronological order. Core themes are the search for national identity during the 1930s, the search for origins and foundations of Cinema Novo (1950s and 1960s), the impact of dictatorship on film production and ways of filmic expression regarding social problems in Brazil.
