Abstract | Full Text

In the last half-century, the construction of collective representations and images increasingly depends on cinema and television. Some theorists even argue the concept of «pictorial turn» is as important as the «linguistic turn» had been a few decades earlier. This inventory covers all narratives made for screen, released in Portugal between 1974 and 1994, having as their main theme the colonial war and/or decolonization.
