Abstract in another language

En esta era de globalización, las “imágenes de los otros”, y sus historias, a menudo nos llegan en reportajes, videos y fotografías en los periódicos que revelan poco o nada sobre quiénes son estos “forasteros en la puerta”. La crisis migratoria se ha convertido en el mayor dilema moral contemporáneo y desafía rutinariamente nuestra comprensión de los estándares culturales y los derechos establecidos, al tiempo que denuncia un control cada vez mayor de los cuerpos y el espacio. Si tales imágenes reflejan nuestra cultura, también sirven a la vez como un elemento que la constituye. Por lo tanto, el presente estudio se propone comprender cómo el "fenómeno migratorio", como "desplazamiento en el espacio" - ya sea exterior o interior, físico o imaginario - fue reapropiado y problematizado por cineastas africanos contemporáneos (ellos mismos sujetos migrantes y diaspóricos), a partir del análisis de películas producidas en los últimos años. Como películas que asumen una postura histórica comprometida, aquí se pretende comprender las diferentes estrategias estéticas que subyacen a la “puesta en escena fílmica”, en cuanto a la trayectoria de sus personajes dentro del espacio social y simbólico del mundo recreado en cada obra. Por ello, es interesante pensar cómo en el cine se “articulan” estratégicamente nuevas subjetividades estéticas y políticas, reconfigurando la tensión entre lo “global” y lo “local”, el “aquí” y el “allí”, al presentar otras formas posibles de “comunidad”, “espacialidad”, “territorialidad”, “memoria” y “pertenencia”, más allá de las fronteras tradicionalmente delimitadas.

Abstract in another language

In this era of globalization, the "images of others" and their stories often reach us in reports, videos, and photographs in newspapers that reveal little or nothing in fact about who these "strangers at the door" are. The migration crisis has become the most remarkable contemporary moral dilemma and daily challenges our understanding of cultural standards and established rights – while denouncing an increasing control of bodies and space. If such images reflect our culture, they also serve as an element that constitutes it. The present study proposes to understand how the "migratory phenomenon," as "displacement in space" - whether exterior or interior, physical or imaginary - was reappropriated and problematized by contemporary African filmmakers (themselves migrant subjects and diasporic) from the analysis of films produced in recent years. As films that assume an engaged historical posture, the aim here is to understand the different aesthetic strategies underlying the "filmic staging" concerning the trajectory of its characters within the social and symbolic space of the world recreated in each work. Therefore, it is interesting to think about how, in cinema, new aesthetic and political subjectivities are strategically "articulated," reconfiguring the tension between the "global" and the "local," the "here" and the "there," by presenting other possible forms of "community," "spatiality," "territoriality," "memory" and "belonging," beyond the traditionally delimited borders.
