Agian, errealitatean, zerua berdea eta gu daltonikoak gara = Quizá, en realidad, el cielo es verde y nosotros somos daltónicos = Maybe the sky is really grren, and we're just colourblind
This module will take a closer look into how the mainstream media constructs itself through intertwining the global with the intimate, through the idea of the ‘other’ and the interjection of fear. We used to be consumers of happiness, and now we have turned into consumers of fear. Embodied in Grimonprez’s film DOUBLE TAKE (2009) through the symptom of the double in what Freud has analysed in his work on the uncanny, and the projection of fear, be it through Hitchcock’s films through love stories by way of male hysteria (e.g. Vertigo, North by Nothwest), or via the rise of the culture of fear by way of the TV box beaming the political spectacle of the cold war. How does a mainstream storyteller such as Hitchcock fit in there? How can one own (political) storytelling as an auteur?
