This chapter argues for a broadening of the horizons of research to include documentary film representations of peoples, things, and issues of concern. It analyses the performative geography of two documentary films and offers an understanding of the geographical nature of performance and perfomative discourse through Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s scholarship on the linguistic utterance. It employs Sedgwick’s notion of the periperformative to explore the ways in which the performative might be contested and radically altered. The two films, The Take and Les Glaneurs et al Glaneuse, offer a way of spatializing and broadening the economy that has implications for the performative potential of hybrid collectives.

Keywords:   Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, The Take, Les Glaneurs et al Glaneuse, performative geography, periperformative, linguistic utterance, hybrid collectives, performativity, documentary film
