A construção da família nos longas-metragens alemães na era digital





Cinema, Longa-metragem alemã, Construção da realidade


Este artigo examina criticamente as imagens da vida doméstica no cinema alemão na era digital. Partindo do pressuposto de que o meio cinematográfico na Alemanha, amplamente patrocinado pelo Estado, reflete lutas por um sentido legítimo, a análise discursiva de 20 longas-metragens alemãs de destaque que tratam de questões familiares da última década revela que, apesar das mudanças culturais e tecnológicas, a produção cinematográfica nacional constrói principalmente cenários familiares idealistas que clamam por coesão e dificilmente são progressistas.
