The emergence of environmental films and environmental narratives is part of a production process of images and sounds related to the proliferation of environmental conflicts in Latin America and in the whole world. This process is relatively new in Argentina and it manifest, among other things, in the production of documentary films that evoke environmental activism. This article analyzes the social construction of environmental issue from the perspective of environmental justice in the case of documentary films produced by two public universities (the National University of Cordoba and the University of Buenos Aires) and by one school of the television production (TEA Image).
From audiovisual qualitative methodological approach, the purpose of this article is to perform an analysis of the environmental audiovisual productions in the specific academic scope of social sciences, productions which often are produced in collaboration with social organizations. Particularly the aim is to reflect on the “scenification” of three specific environmental conflicts represented in the documentary films under analysis.
