PINEIRO AGUILAR, Eleder. Solidarity, reciprocity and violence in the cinema. An anthropological reading of Parasites and El Hoyo.. Ñawi [online]. 2020, vol.4, n.2, pp.17-33. ISSN 2588-0934.

We thought about two recent cinematographic works in order to place them at the center of a theoretical reflection on the political, the economic, and the crisis, but not only to better understand economics, but also to expose an economic socio-anthropology in a comparative key, and meanwhile being able to relate it to certain theorizations around political philosophy. The works which we refer are El Hoyo (Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia, 2020) and Parasites (Bong Joon-Ho, 2019) and we will discuss from a theoretical framework which comes from diverse scientific, social and humanistic conceptualizations. We affirm how both films focus on classic social science issues such as alienation, reciprocity, distinction, informality, exchange or cooperation, among others. To do this, firstly, we will make a brief summary of the films. Next, we expose epigraphs around: 1) class struggles and distinction; 2) reciprocity and morality. Finally, we will argue about the borders of the human, placing violence at the center, concluding about the different lines of flight proposed in the films to understand the human condition and the diversity of capitalist logics in the actions of its protagonists.
