Saudade in Brazilian Cinema - The History of an Emotion on Film

Summary

Saudade has received much attention, at times celebratory and at times more critical, from artists and other intellectuals. As a powerful ‘sister emotion’ of nostalgia, the affective structure of the sentiment can be best understood as a tripartite ‘feeling blend’, bringing together the two emotional components of love and grief, mediated through the element of memory. Saudade in Brazilian Cinema: The History of an Emotion on Film aims to develop an analytical framework of the field of emotion studies. It places insights on saudade as presented on screen in dialogue with studies of emotion and affect with respect to ideology, hegemony and subalternity. This theoretical background is applied in detail to representations of saudade in twentieth and twenty-first century Brazilian cinema.

    In this travel adventure, Pete Martin experiences the joy of providing housing, schooling and football training to street children in Ghana. Subsequently, he embarks on a journey of discovery across various parts of Africa – a journey on the outside becomes a journey on the inside. The author comes to terms with the change in his life stage, from one of achievement to now one of quiet satisfaction, of being able to now say no to being indiscriminately busy and committing only to the right things, of surrendering to the present and enjoying the now as he travels in South Africa, Morocco, São Tomé, Senegal and Cape Verde. 
    There is no road to happiness; happiness is the road.

    In 2002 Guillermo Fesser quit his morning radio talk show in Madrid, and moved with his family to Rhinebeck, N.Y., for a sabbatical year. Finding himself in a rural community 6,000 miles from home and 100 miles from New York City, Fesser began to discover an America he had never imagined existed. One Hundred Miles from Manhattan is a fresh, funny, positive and affectionate portrait of life in small-town America—and beyond. This book is filled with the stories of the people Fesser met, the places he visited and the things he learned during his year in Rhinebeck, from the German neighbors who welcome in the New Year by jumping back and forth from the couch to the coffee table to a Texan rancher who follows Native American traditions in the raising of bison; from a guide who leads fishing expeditions into Alaska’s Kuskokwim Mountains to the engineer responsible for the steam conduction system in Manhattan’s underbelly; and from a former follower of Reverend Moon turned track coach to the man who created Big Bird.
