Since the 1970s, film theory has consistently focused on the

representation of women and men in cinema. Research about adult

exhibition has not been matched, until recently, by a similar concern

with the representation of children and adolescents on the silver screen.

In this presentation, Prof. Rocha touches on two types of contemporary

Argentine and Brazilian films in which young characters move the

narrative development. Rocha argues that while children are frequently

represented as victims and witnesses of their countries' political

violence, few films pay attention to the portrayal of their subjectivity.  The SIP Colloquium is a venue to share and discuss

current research by SIP faculty, graduate students and

guest speakers.
