Dear all,

You are cordially invited to Echoes of Manguebeat, a video essay and seminar by Amanda Mansur Nogueira, to take place at 4.30pm on Tuesday 11 June, at Studio Space, the Minghella Building, University of Reading,.

Film production in Pernambuco, in the Northeastern Region of Brazil, grew out of the effervescent music scene of the 1990s. Pernambucan cinema has appropriated Manguebeat music as a synesthetic experience and transmedia experience. Based on the methodology of intermedia analysis, the aim of this seminar is to open up the relationship between music and film in contemporary Pernambucan cinema.

What has been the impact of Manguebeat on film production in Pernambuco? How does the music define the choice of camera angles, performances, editing? How does the music articulate the films' narratives? It is with the intention of discussing such issues that we propose this seminar and the presentation of  a video essay.

Amanda Mansur Nogueira is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Reading, supervised by Professor Lúcia Nagib. She is an expert in Pernambucan cinema and a Lecturer in Film Production at Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil.
