ABSTRACT
This article examines the key features --historical, rethorical and related to genre-- that characterizes one kind of audiovisual text with scarce cinematographic tradition. The film-essay proposes a personal and nonsystematic discourse, using different tools: a personal style, a visible editing that privileges the word, or the filmic presence of the author. In this way, the film essayist builds its reflection inside the images, putting forward his/her way of thinking.
