Abstract in another language

Este libro es el resultado de mi investigación de maestría en Sociología que comenzó en 2012 y terminó en 2015 en la Universidad Federal de Pernambuco. Durante este período me interesó comprender las dinámicas sociales y culturales presentes en aquellos países llamados, muchas veces peyorativamente, el “tercer mundo”. En otras palabras, me propuse comprender lo que realmente se ha producido en términos políticos y poéticos en países que han vivido la experiencia del proceso colonial, desde una perspectiva decolonial y/o poscolonial. Inicialmente, mi enfoque estuvo en América Latina y la dinámica de la producción cinematográfica en el llamado Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano. Durante esta experiencia inicial me topé con algo hasta ahora insólito, pero aún poco cuestionado: la ausencia de estudios sociológicos sobre la producción cinematográfica africana. Recuerdo que la atención prestada a la producción literaria africana en ese momento gozaba de relativo prestigio dentro de la academia, con obras de autores angoleños y mozambiqueños traducidas y estudiadas en departamentos de sociología y literatura. Sin embargo, el cine africano, con raras excepciones, seguía siendo un tema marginado y poco discutido entre nosotros, sociólogos y académicos. La investigación buscaba, por tanto, abrir nuevas posibilidades de análisis dentro del campo de investigación sobre el arte y la cultura desde una perspectiva periférica y no hegemónica. Ahora con la publicación de este libro, existe la posibilidad de que un público no académico pueda leer y sumergirse en este mundo hoy un poco más debatido que en 2012, pero aún lejos de tener el merecido reconocimiento.

Abstract in another language

This book is the result of my master's research in Sociology that started in 2012 and ended in 2015 at the Federal University of Pernambuco. During this period, I was interested in understanding the social and cultural dynamics present in those countries called, often pejoratively, the “third world”. In other words, I set out to understand what has actually been produced in political and poetic terms in countries that have lived through the experience of the colonial process – from a decolonial and/or post-colonial perspective. Initially, my focus was on Latin America and the dynamics of cinematographic production at the so-called Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano. During this initial experience, I came across something hitherto unusual, but still little questioned: the absence of sociological studies on African cinematographic production. I remember that the attention given to African literary production at that time enjoyed relative prestige within the academy, with works by Angolan and Mozambican authors being translated and studied in departments of sociology and literature. However, African cinema, with rare exceptions, still remained a marginalized topic and little discussed among us, sociologists and scholars. The research therefore sought to open up new possibilities for analysis within the field of investigation on art and culture from a peripheral and non-hegemonic perspective. Now with the publication of this book, there is the possibility that a non-academic audience can read and immerse themselves in this world today a little more debated than in 2012, but still far from having the deserved recognition.
