SAMPAIO, Sofia. Between filmmaking practices and tourist practices: an ethnographic look on the production of Portuguese tourism films in the 1960s. Etnográfica [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.1, pp.193-210.  Epub 25-Maio-2021. ISSN 0873-6561.

This article explores the relationship between filmmaking practices and tourist practices in the production of Portuguese tourism films in the 1960s. Besides analysing the images deposited in the National Archive of the Moving Images (ANIM) of the Portuguese Film Museum (Cinemateca Portuguesa-Museu do Cinema), I draw on interviews with filmmakers and their relatives to retrieve the production contexts and practices of the films, in a kind of retrospective ethnography of the film production field of those times. Frequently relegated (by the filmmakers themselves) to a secondary or marginal position, these and other utility films played an important part in the careers of these professionals, allowing them to develop a professional praxis recognised inside and outside the field and, in general, remain in a profession shaped by great instability. In line with “non-representational” or “more-than-representational” theories, I analyse the production of tourism moving images in the light of embodied and situated filmmaking and tourist experiences that overlap and not so much of the direct imposition of a “tourist gaze” by the industry or the State.
