In the last decade (2010-2020), we have been following the emergence of a Brazilian cinematography, which uses in its strategy of performing the actor-character and his life stories in the construction of a hybrid narrative, which oscillates between fiction and the documentary. Many of these films are built from real characters who perform situations that are specific to them or close to their daily lives, together with fictional situations. Such procedures have become recurrent in Brazilian independent and post-industrial cinema. Observing this phenomenon, we have the following hypothesis: the presence of these actor-characters in the films provokes a series of transformations, both in the actor-characters and in the narrative structures, in the modes of cinematographic production and mainly in the ways of making documentary. As a methodological path, we undertook a historicization of hybrid cinema in the Brazilian context, through bibliographical research, we investigated the relationships between the inheritance of the representation of the other in documentary, in view of decolonial thinking. We use the comparative methodology of filmic constellations to establish approximations with regard to the procedures for making these films, observing the affinities and affectations of this cinematographic community. And, in order to understand the transformations that take place with the actor-character when starting in the cinematographic rite, we conducted in-depth interviews with directors, members of the technical team and with actors from six different films. Still, we carried out an ethnography of a hybrid film set in order to examine the praxis of the entire creative process of this form of realization, in order to understand the needs, difficulties and potential of this cinema, which through the ethics of invention, of performance of itself, it projects a new possibility of narrative and life. As a result of this research, we hope to provoke reflections on the teaching of filmmaking, as well as on the formulation of notices to promote audiovisual production.
