Identity, identification and differentiation in contemporary brazilian comedies

Antonio Carlos Rodrigues de Amorim, David Martin-Jones

Resumo


We explore how Deleuze’s notion of the ‘powers of the false’, from Cinema 2, enables a consideration of the ways in which national identity is negotiated in two popular Brazilian comedies of the 2000s, Se Eu Fosse Você/If I Were You (2006) and Se Eu Fosse Você 2/If I Were You 2 (2009). The films offer possibilities for various Brazilian audiences to reimagine national identities “against the grain” of a movement-image blockbuster with an apparently homogenising white, middle class, nuclear family-oriented, normative image of national identity.  Studying the aesthetics of these artistic productions, understanding their implications for people and for world representations as structured by the look and its narrative, we found contributions to cultural identities discussions on curriculum studies.
