Metaphors in Cinema – Possession, Obsession and Religious Purity
March 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$7
In 1635 a group of nuns in Loudon France claimed to have been possessed by the devil. This masterpiece is a historical prequel to “Mother Joan of the Angels” and its polar opposite in terms of its tone, style, and handling of the characters. Since I was sick last time and missed giving the lecture, I’m excited to do it in relation to this movie. I’ll be touching on religious metaphors and their relationship to how we conceptualize the self.
Local short “Hissteria” by Daniel Bean and Josiah Jones will screen before the feature presentation.
