Darkness as Material
Stockholm University of the Arts, Department of Film and Media.
2023 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic) [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

The doctoral project Darkness as Material, examines darkness as material and its relationship to cinematic storytelling. The study addresses different kinds of darkness: darkness in the image, darkness in the cinema theatre, darkness in the spectator where films are received and the darkness in the filmmaker, where the world is reflected and ideas are born. The project is inspired by Marguerite Duras' idea to kill cinema, and it explores film's potential to approach the place she described as the dark room, where we are deaf and blind and passion is possible.

Abstract [sv]

Doktorandprojektet Darkness as material undersöker mörkret som material och dess relation till filmiskt berättande. Studien rör sig mellan olika sorters mörker; mörkret i bilden, mörkret i biosalongen, mörkret i åskådaren där filmer tas emot och mörkret inom filmskaparen där samtiden avspeglar sig och idéer föds. Projektet är inspirerat av Marguerite Duras idé att döda filmen och undersöker möjligheten att närma sig den plats som hon kallade för det mörka rummet där vi är döva och blinda och passion är möjlig.
