abstract

Reflects on proposals for Joseph Roth, Walter Benjamin, Sigfried Kracauer and Claudio Guillén, in which it introduces the concept of ‘white city’, on the border idea and centrality to conclude that the ‘white city’ is unfocused and peripheral invaded and rebel, model (or the project) and hell (or nightmare chaos). The concept applies to taking four cities ‘white’ the way of significant sequences of four films: Los olvidados (1950) by Luis Buñuel, Pizza, birra, faso (1998) Bruno Stagnaro and Israel Adrián Caetano, Dans la ville blanche (1983) Alain Tanner y Biutiful (2010) Alejandro González Iñárritu.
