BOUZO, Soledad Fernández. Narratives of the Environmental Films in Buenos Aires: Expert’s Speeches or Alternative Approaches?. Letras Verdes [online]. 2018, n.23, pp.23-45.  Epub 01-Mar-2018. ISSN 1390-6631.

This article analyzes and compares the main narratives circulated by different environmental film institutional devices in Buenos Aires through their documentary films. The key questions are: What type of narratives and approaches of environmentalism mobilize such devices? Which arguments are used? Are they dominated by expert’s speeches which rely on the potential of certain cultural changes and/or science and technology innovations within global capitalist economies? Or rather are they alternative approaches questioning the very foundations of capitalism today? In order to answer those questions, we conducted a sociological analysis on two levels: an institutional one, aimed at characterizing the networks of actors that are formed around the environmental film devices, and a narrative one, the purpose of which is to track the main speeches and approaches on the environmental issue.

Palabras clave : environmental narratives; environmental sociology; documentary films; audio-visual methodology.
