In a contemporary context, the concept of power networks is used in the study of political society. The overlapping of political power and the varied networks of entities that shape the social context create a consensus on political communities’ analysis. This paper aims to develop the study of some historical examples of the phenomenon of transatlantic transmissions of norms, beliefs and values that revise the sense of a Luso-Brazilian community. New approaches, namely on the perspectives that documentary films offer on political and cultural paths are made possible by a revised historiography and new cultural political approaches. In the late twentieth century, the image and the documentary film formed an important commu- nication mechanism enhancing the cultural and symbolic imagery shared between Portugal and Brazil. However, the new political configurations under the globalization process confiscate and transform that imagery. Reshaped power transferred from institutions to individuals allows other readings of cultural and political language communities.
