Dissensus/Consensus: Indigenous Collaborative Filmmaking from Latin America

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract / Description of output

Films circulated through the changing routes of Indigenous cinema often attest to an intercultural imperative which drives process (collaborative praxis), product (hybrid aesthetics) and reception (bridging distinct audiences). This presentation draws on recent examples of collaboration in Indigenous filmmaking from Latin America as a means to consider the art of dissensus and consensus. These films demonstrate how collaborative filmmaking affords multivocal perspectives that reframe diverse rhetorics of authorship and authority, simultaneously acknowledging fraught histories of (mis)representation and shaping audience understandings of the works across cultural contexts.
