"Ne m'intéresse que ce qui n'est pas à moi" : une approche esthétique de la reprise d'archives dans deux films d'histoire au Brésil pendant la dictature

Abstract : This thesis develops a study of two compilation films made in Brazil in the early 1970s: História do Brasil (History of Brazil, Glauber Rocha and Marcos Medeiros, 1974) and Triste Trópico (Sad Tropic, Arthur Omar, 1974). Unique works in the filmography of important filmmakers, these films, made from the appropriation of various materials, share in addition to their atypical method of filmmaking, a central interest for the understanding of the history of Brazil. They radically exploit the power of rewriting what already exists to build a new work of historical content. In their work with pre-existing images História do Brasil and Triste Trópico address issues that concern not only the cinema, but the field of Brazilian cultural creation of the 60s and 70s, period politically marked in Brazil by the military dictatorship (1964-1985). Based mostly on an aesthetic analysis of the film's montages, we question the way in which they "write" history and offer, in their very editing processes, a perspective at Brazilian society. From what materials and discursive strategies do these films develop their historical thoughts? The thesis aims to contribute to the establishment of a range of film recycling practices and theoretical questions about the presence of archival footage in cinema, as well as about the relationship between cinema and historical narrative.
