Proceeding from last month’s meeting, July’s discussion will focus on Slavoj Zizek’s The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, Part 2. The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema offers an introduction into some of Zizek’s most exciting ideas on fantasy, reality, sexuality, subjectivity, desire, materiality and cinematic form. Playing on cinema’s great tradition for romantic narratives, Part 2 unlocks what these narratives tell us about the critical role that fantasy plays in sexual relationships.
Interested parties are encouraged to join in Thought on Film at any point and to draw strange connections to their practice, be it film or not.
