    The emergence of the first person in documentary film is not a fact disconnected from cultural transformations, but as broad ones that had a great impact on artistic and intellectual expressions such as the crisis of large narratives and totalizing explanations, the profusion of small narratives, the discourse about the world centered on subjectivity and the biographical and autobiographical trajectories of its authors. The first-person documentary also contributed to the accessibility of sound and image technologies, with the emergence of video and successive technological innovations, the availability of editing and composition software, as well as the economic and political requirements that facilitated the profusion of solitary, independent filmmakers and the surfacing of first-person cinema. However this does not constitute a break with the past, but the development in what was already latent since the 1960s and which in the subsequent years found appropriate conditions for its development. The themes are not particularly innovative, not even their social function. The novelty / innovation consists above all in the treatment of themes and social phenomena from the experience of oneself, the individual, personal, in order to tackle them. In this session we will invite a female filmmaker to present her personal experience of creativity in the first person.
