February 28 guest lecture Films and Feelings: Black Swan

21 February 2013
Black Swan

The Department of Arts, Culture and Media would like to invite you to the second installment of our lecture series "Films and Feelings. New Research on Cinematic Emotions".

Tarja Laine from the University of Amsterdam will talk about Film Aesthetics and Emotion with reference to Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan (2010).

The lecture will take place on Thursday, February 28, from 6-8pm in the Van der Leeuwzaal (Academy Building).


"For most people [cinema] is a place to feel something. The dependability of movies to provide emotional experiences for diverse audiences lies at the centre of the medium’s appeal and power" (Carl Plantinga/Greg M. Smith). This lecture discusses the role of emotions and the way in which the aesthetic system of cinema engages the spectator.
