Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This report reflects the tasks and functions developed during the curricular internship in Editing at the production companies Cimbalino Filmes and Olhar de Ulisses, in the scope of the Master's degree in Cinema at the Escola das Artes of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa. During the six months of internship at the aforementioned production companies, it was possible to apply and explore all the knowledge acquired during the course at the School of Arts. In the context of the participation in the post-production of the documentary 50/50, by Mafalda Rebelo, which filled up a significant amount of the internship period, it was proposed a reflection on the documentary-film genre, more specifically on family documentaries made by women in contemporary Portuguese cinema, to study the gaze the female director holds over the family unit and how that understanding manifests itself on film, with a focus on four Portuguese films: A Metamorfose dos Pássaros, by Catarina Vasconcelos, Tempo Comum, by Susana Nobre, Amor Fati, by Cláudia Varejão, and, finally, A Volta Ao Mundo Quando Tinhas 30 Anos, by Aya Koretzky.
