Cloning goes to the movies
Cormick, Craig;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702006000500011
Abstract: public attitude research conducted by biotechnology australia shows that one of the major sources of information on human reproductive cloning is movies. traditionally, understanding of new and emerging technologies has come through the mass media but human cloning, being so widely addressed through the popular culture of movies, is more effectively defined by hollywood than the news media or science media. but how well are the science and social issues of cloning portrayed in box office hits such as the island, multiplicity, star wars: attack of the clones and jurassic park? these movies have enormous reach and undoubted influence, and are therefore worth analyzing in some detail. this study looks at 33 movies made between 1971 and 2005 that address human reproductive cloning, and it categorizes the films based on their genre and potential influence. yet rather than simply rating the quality of the science portrayed, the study compares the key messages in these movies with public attitudes towards cloning, to examine the correlations.

Screening Sex: revelando e dissimulando o sexo
Williams, Linda;
Cadernos Pagu , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-83332012000100002
Abstract: in this paper, we try to tell the history of the exhibition of sex in movies mainly produced in the united states in almost a century. asking when, why and how the united states became - from a culture that did not exhibit sex - into a culture that exhibits it, the author insists in the double sense of the verb to screen (as both a revelation and a dissimulation). to exhibit is to reveal in a screen. but another, and important, sense, as says the dictionary, is "to protect or hide behind a screen". movies show as well as they reveal. the paper analyzes the way social change in the united states, for example the sexual revolution of the sixties and new views on sexuality allowed new ways of representing sex in the movies, creating a new relation between public and private. the paper also asks how our bodies and senses react to sex in the screen, introducing the idea of "carnal knowledge".

Silva, Luiza Bontempo e;
Fractal : Revista de Psicologia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-02922009000300008
Abstract: this is a explanatory work with the intent to establish a dialogue between the julian jarrold's movie becoming jane and the jungian conception of the individuation process. it was observed that the movie makes many references to the jung's work, being, the main plot, a perfect example (intentional or not) of the process of personal development, by the junguians known as individuation process. on the analyzed movie, the main character passes through the difficult process of discovering of one self. this is a very common experience which can be noted on many people's life and is essential to self realization.
Anotaciones sobre el cine y la ideología
Cárdenas,Juan David;
Palabra Clave , 2012,
Abstract: this article points towards working out a series of suppositions taken for granted in relation to what it means to make movies. from its first years, when the idea of cinematographic production was naturalized. this collective image made possible the consolidation of the film industry as art and, at the same time, blocked out possible alternatives of filmmaking. in such sense, this text wants to, through a series of observations; make visible the ideological budgets hiding behind this naturalization of the cinematographic production.

Movies in chemistry education
Bülent PEKDAG,Jean-Fran?ois LE MARéCHAL
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching , 2010,
Abstract: This article reviews numerous studies on chemistry movies. Movies, or moving pictures, are important elements of multimedia and signify a privileged or motivating means of presenting knowledge. Studies on chemistry movies show that the first movie productions in this field were devoted to university lectures or documentaries. Shorter movies were limited to a single experiment, to be used in the classroom. Movies for preparing for laboratory work and examinations appeared later. The article offers useful information about the ways in which chemistry movies have been used in the last half-century and the benefits such movies provide students in the school environment. The article also offers recommendations on perspectives concerning the training of teachers who are involved in using chemistry movies as a method of instruction in their classes.
The desire for more-life and the vampire’s humanization
Sandra Maria Lúcia Pereira Gon?alves
Verso e Reverso , 2011,
Abstract: If we suppose the media are the linking elements in the social organization, as well as structure elements of the contemporary society, we think the medium cinema as a place where powers can be exercised. The theme is human finitude. Through the representation of the vampire in the movies based on the books – Dracula, by Bram Stoker, Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice and Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer – we will think about the “bargains” established between the man and his finitude. Through the figure of the vampire and its mutations, we will meditate on the human wish for more-life. We live the paradox between the wish to be human an immortal, at the same time. This paradox ails the vampire as well as the human. Being mortal continues to define us. Foucault is the basis for this path, when the author indicates the attention to be given to the conditions of the possibility of speeches.
