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.

    What advice would your 80-year-old self give you? That is the question artist Susan O'Malley, who was herself to die far too young, asked more than a hundred ordinary people of every age, from every walk of life. She then transformed their responses into vibrant text-based images. From a prompt to do things that matter to your heart, to a reminder that it's okay to have sugar in your tea, these are calls to action and words to live by—heartfelt, sometimes humorous, and always fiercely compassionate. This stirring celebration of our collective humanity unveils the wisdom we hold inside ourselves right now.
