DIAS, Rosimeri de Oliveira  and  BARROS, Maria Elizabeth Barros de. For between afternoons and the effects of meetings with Margueritte or misplaced of an ethopoiesis. LTP [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.73, pp.69-85.  Epub July 24, 2019. ISSN 2317-0972.

This work is based on an ethical, aesthetic and political approach between Michel Foucault’s writing the self and Jean Becker’s “My Afternoons with Margueritte”. We have focused on the tessitura of good encounters, in order to problematize a practice of the constitution of an ethical subject in the present. The encounters are taken, as proposed by Gilles Deleuze, as situations that can make the force of an event vibrate and invigorate. The work is divided into two moments: friendship and its ethopoietic effects; and practices of the self and how they interwine with cinema and difference. Such moments show that the strength of a good encounter is re-invigorated when it is understood in a perspective that shifts the points of view of the characters of the film, making the movement-images and time-images show feats and the joyful force of a practice of the self, so as to differ and create other ways of living.

Keywords : Self-writing; event; ethics.
