PASSARELLI, Franco. The first audio-visual journeys (1936) of Rolf Blomberg in Ecuador. Universitas [online]. 2017, n.27, pp.117-135. ISSN 1390-8634.

The objective of this article is to investigate, from the comparative analysis of the films “In Canoe to the Land of the Reductors of Heads” and “Vikings in the Islands of the Giant Tortoises” of Rolf David Blomberg (Sweden, 1912- Ecuador, 1996), the production and reproduction of images of European explorers in Ecuador during the interwar period (1919-1939). The work is mainly focused on the analysis of the film form of both films where the construction of “audio-visual trips” is intended to be discussed. Time, space and subject are left unadjusted at different levels as conclusions of comparative analysis. The questions that will guide this work are: What kind of narratives and imaginaries constructed the “audiovisual journeys” of European explorers / filmmakers in Ecuador? How did these ideas circulate? What is the importance of studying the movement images of this type of explorers / directors from and for Audiovisual Anthropology?

Palabras clave : Rolf Blomberg; audiovisual journeys; chronicles of explorers; representation; audiovisual anthropology.
