Between Text And Film: A Contextual Bifurcation In Feliz Ano Velho, Andrew M. Ray
Andrew M. Ray
The present study problematizes the results in character development due to differences in the use of historical and amorous contexts between the text, Feliz Ano Velho (1982), and its film adaptation, Feliz ano vehlo: uma adaptação livre da obra de Marcelo R.

Power, Conflict And Resistance: Social Movements, Networks And Hierarchies, Athina Karatzogianni, Andrew Robinson
