  "abstract": "<p>Rita Azevedo Gomes&#39; Correspond&ecirc;ncias (2016) draws on the epistolary correspondence between Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen and Jorge de Sena, as well as their respective poetic works, to build an epistolary-poetic, audio-visual and sensory-emotional kaleidoscope based on their reading, reciting and representation in different languages. In this way, the filmmaker generates a kind of phenomenology of reception that uses all the audiovisual possibilities: the different formats, digital and analogue; their multiple&nbsp;textures; and the diverse options of the texts enunciation. The experimentation with their different combinations, also using various image and sound effects, materialises in an epistolary-poetic essay film which reflects on the aesthetic experience and attains a hybrid, complex image defining contemporary cinema: between person and character, diegesis and extradiegesis, digital and analogue images, voice-in and voiceover, private and public, life and work, present and past, absence and presence, that is, between reproduction and representation (Quintana, 2011). Azevedo&rsquo;s essayistic reflection on creation, exile and absence is generated through parataxic thinking (Catal&agrave;, 2014) and interstitial thinking (Rascaroli, 2017) that create dialectical and symbolic sentence-images (Ranci&egrave;re, 2003). Thus, Correspond&ecirc;ncias becomes an avant-garde expression of both contemporary epistolary cinema and contemporary essay film.</p>",
