Peripheral Visions / Global Sounds

José Colmeiro

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores new conceptual models to approach the work of a new generation of experimental Galician filmmakers adopting a peripheral position, understood as a conceptual, ideological,and aesthetic positioning more than merely a geolocation, which questions the mainstream hegemonic values emanating from the center while aiming to bring visibility to the fringes. It examines the boom of the so called Novo Cinema Galego (New Galician Cinema), focusing on the border crossing and blending of fiction/documentary generic conventions, and analyses the most representative cases, such as Oliver Laxe, Xurxo Chirro, Lois Patiño, Peque Varela, Eloy Enciso, and Susana Rei.

Keywords:   Peripheral cinema, Novo Cinema Galego, New Galician Cinema, Oliver Laxe, Xurxo Chirro, Lois Patiño, Peque Varela Eloy Enciso, Susana Rei
