Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay aims to examine some iconographic and narrative motifs elaborated in cinematographic works dedicated to the Truth and Riconciliation Commission, from which it is possible to trace useful elements not simply for a contextual reconstruction of the event (the places of the hearings, the rites, the organizational machine, etc.), but above all to study the impact of such a process on the collective imagination. In particular, the corpus of selected films will help on the one hand to explore the TRC as a live event and participated by multiple social actors, on the other to analyze how the institutional discourse of reconciliation and forgiveness in the post-TRC historical phase reappears.
