Four Nights on Cinema of the Occult: Themes, Analysis, Views

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Series Dates: 7 Jan (Thurs), 21 Jan (Thurs), 4 Feb (Thurs), 18 Feb (Thurs)


Occultism has a key relationship with film: was part of the inception of cinema: spectators, with their dreams and fantasies, entered into Faustian pacts with the enigmatic plane of the screen and its magickal intensities. Its spell continues to this day, with the screen continuing to open up for us other worlds and planes of intensity.

This series of four fortnightly evenings will cover a range of themes in occult and cinema, in a way that we hope will entertain, challenge -- and make you consider the world of the visible/invisible in new ways. Professor MacCormack's film lectures earlier this year were fantastically popular, and she returns at the request of many of those who attended. She will bring some rarer examples along with fresh considerations of some of the classics. Above all, she will be bringing theoretical and philosophical critiques, and will be inviting the audience to challenge themselves, each other and the ideas she brings to the table. Each session concludes with a wine party.

Patricia MacCormack is Professor in Communication and Film at Anglia Ruskin University; she works and has published extensively in Continental philosophy, cinesexuality, post-human ethics, chaos magic, sexuality and occult culture.
