Do barro do rio: um filme de animação inspirado na lenda do Golem
Keywords in Portuguese

Abstract in Portuguese
O golem é um ser mítico ligado ao misticismo judaico. O relato mais significativo envolve Judah Loew, rabino de Praga na república Checa no século XVI. O rabino Loew modelou o seu golem com o barro do rio Vltava e lhe deu vida através de um processo mágico. O Golem foi criado para proteger o povo judeu dos crescentes ataques anti-semitas. Nesta animação, feita com a técnica de stop-motion utilizando a argila como meio de expressão, a lenda do golem assume uma abordagem contemporânea. O Golem tem de proteger não só o povo judeu, mas toda a humanidade contra sua maior ameaça. Buscando entender sua tarefa, ele se depara com a contradição que ela representa. Neste filme de animação a argila sublima sua materialidade e liberta-se de seu peso para tornar-se um meio líquido e etéreo. Por este motivo ela foi escolhida como meio de expressão para este projeto.

Abstract in English
The golem is a being connected to Jewish mysticism. The most significant narrative involves Judah Loew, the late 16th-century rabbi of Prague, in the Czech Republic. The rabbi modelled the Golem out of clay from the banks of the Vltava river, and brought it to life through a magic process. The Golem was created to defend the Jews from antisemitic attacks. In this short stop-motion animation made with clay, the story of the Golem takes a contemporary approach. The Golem has to defend not the Jews only, but the whole human kind from its greatest threat. Searching for the meaning of its task, the Golem faces the contradiction it represents. In this animation, clay frees itself from its materiality leaving behind its weight to become fluid and ethereal. That is the reason why it was chosen to be used as the means of expression in this project.
