About this item

Drawing on the challenges of urban expansion and increasing population density facing contemporary Brazil, Shifting Horizons is an interdisciplinary investigation of the treatment of social difference in documentary film and photography and its potential to effect social and political change.

  • Explores the Brazilian documentary tradition of conscientização, alongside new movements such as inclusão visual, introducing the voices of a range of innovative and highly contemporary artists, filmmakers, and cultural commentators
  • Discusses traditionally marginalized urban spaces using the concepts of inequality, segregation, integration, and relationality
  • Bridges the domains of film and photography and brings greater awareness to Brazilian cultural output
  • Highlights new ways in which today’s social documentary practice and production can inspire social and cultural transformation, in Brazil and around the world
