+ Add me!

Fantastic Spaces in Cinema is a research that I am developing in cinema, supported by Gilles Deleuze's texts and Bergson's Matter and Memory.  The sessions will consist in film screenings followed by discussions, which topics varying from surrealism, experimental and avant garde cinema through narrative that highlight dreams, phantasms, memories, fantasies, and non-chronological time. 

The planned filmography will include Luis Buñuel’s The Exterminating Angel and That Obscure Object of Desire; Maya Deren’s Meshes of Afternoon and Ritual in Transfigured Time; Alain Robbe-Grillet’s L’Immortelle and The Man Who Lies; Alain Resnais’ Last Year at Marienbad; Raoul Ruiz’s Time Regained and Genealogies of a Crime; Michel Gondry’s Science of Sleep and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom; David Lynch’s  Inland Empire; Dario Argento’s Suspiria; Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s Santa Sangre; Andrei Tarkovsky’s The Mirror and Nostalgia; Alexander Sokurov's Russian Ark; Quay Brothers’ Street of Crocodiles and The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer; Jan Svankmajer’s Little Otik and Alice; Jiri Barta’s Labyrinth of Darkness; Catharine Breillat’s The Sleeping Beauty; Chris Maker’s La Jetee and Eliane Lima’s Djinn.
