ARAUJO, Pedro Felipe M. de  and  BAPTISTA, Luis Antonio dos Santos. Ética como juego de escena. LTP [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.73, pp.105-118.  Epub July 24, 2019. ISSN 2317-0972.

Focusing on Eduardo Coutinho’s documentary Jogo de Cena, this article proposes questioning dominant postures of interpretation of characters of a narrated story. It also presents other possible meanings to what otherness is when dealing with difference. The film, by situating the speech scene as an open game, shifts from the search for a stable truth that the other might reveal. This shift de-privatizes the intimate sphere, enabling the production of an open artwork, which renders a single reading inoperative. Inspired on contributions by Walter Benjamin, among other autors, we have emphasized the commitment of an ethics that promotes perceptions of the world that are not exhausted in the attempt of classifying a narrative in the identity or privatizing scope of the subjectivity. Ethics is understood as a political game where stories refuse the conclusiveness of an end.

Keywords : Documentary; subjectivity; ethics.
