DINIZ, Margareth. "I am Sam": Mental retardation and the relation with knowledge. Estilos clin. [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.2, pp. 279-296. ISSN 1415-7128.

The movie "I am Sam" is about mental disability and the social representations that surround it. Initially, the article presents the definition of mental retardation from a universal perspective and discusses the differences between learning disability, school failure and weakness from the perspective of psychoanalysis considering the child's relationship with knowledge. The goal of this paper is to use films and the filmography available in order to interrogate fixed and segregational diagnoses that exclude the subject and its relationship to knowledge.

Palavras-chave : disability; subject; relationship with knowledge.
