ReFocus: The Films of João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata

 

With a career that spans over twenty years, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata are one of the most creative duos in contemporary filmmaking working within the context of Portuguese cinema. Acknowledged by several film festivals (Cannes, Indie Lisboa, Locarno, New York) as major Portuguese directors, and by the Harvard Film Archive as creators whose works “reflect the multifarious history of film, from classic genres to experimental film”, both filmmakers have contributed to the growing interest in Portuguese cinema.

Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz's field-defining article, "The New Modernist Studies," turns ten in 2018. Despite the fact that the article takes up new media as a key topic, and although it was published just after ground-breaking work in the "visual turn" of literary studies by Mary Lou Emery (Modernism, the Visual, and Caribbean Literature, 2007), W.J.T. Mitchell (Picture Theory, 2005), Michael North (Camera Works, 2005), and Mark Wollaeger (Modernism, Media, and Propaganda, 2006), theories and discussions of global modernism have since focused considerably more energy on modernism's geographic and temporal dimensions than its relation to the graphic.

In December 2012, a young woman named Jyoti Singh was raped in New Delhi while returning home after watching a film with her friend. The incident quickly became a sensational news story in both national and international media, leading to an unprecedented amount of popular protests in New Delhi and other Indian cities. To be precise, the Jyoti Singh Rape Case proved to be a watershed moment in the history of the contemporary gendered mobilizations in India, which unleashed a series of questions for the Indian women’s movement.

“In my craft or sullen art” -Dylan Thomas

 

Thomas is one in a long line who self-reflexively meditates on his own work. Indeed, a writer’s craft has been the topic of much discussion both by critics and by authors themselves, considering the interplay between a writer’s natural ability and her tendency to consciously create, between the ingenuity of her ideas and the discipline of putting them into practice. In doing so, Thomas, along with others, bring to the forefront an epistemological question: Is ‘crafting’ in opposition to art?
